On March 11, 2017, 175 people united together in Montreal to speak about why law needs feminism and explore what we can do in our professional practice and communities to foster more equitable access to justice—all of this just eleven months after we released the first 33 portraits through the Feminist Collective of McGill Law.


keynote speaker, Amanda Ghahremani


“Law needs intersectional feminism because it is only through the flooding of legal spaces: the law firms, the courtrooms, the benches, the international tribunals with women, women of colour, disabled women, women who by virtue of their experiences will ensure that women’s narrative stories and phenomenology play a central role in our justice mechanisms, that we will see change.”
