UBC #LawNeedsFeminismBecause, in collaboration with the UBC Center for Feminist Legal Studies, is excited to be part of a growing national movement in law schools across Canada.
In the spring of 2017, more than 40 diverse feminists, students, staff and faculty at the school came out to share their ideas on why the law and legal profession needs to embrace feminism.

The University of Victoria's FemLaw Club is proud to present our 2018 Law Needs Feminism Because photo campaign!
Windsor Law is proud to display 94 unique portraits and messages from feminists in the Windsor community. Law students, professors, and practitioners all came together to tell us why they feel law needs feminism. The responses inspired us, made us laugh, and reminded us of the unity in the movement towards gender equality, no matter how the participants defined feminism for themselves. We are proud to share these perspectives with you today.
In October 2016, a small assortment of first-year students at Windsor Law met to discuss participating in the national campaign. This determined group of strangers quickly bonded over the shared goal of producing a collection of portraits that would showcase feminist voices. Over the next two months, they held four photo shoots that produced 80 portraits, featuring students, faculty, alumni, and judges. Through their enthusiastic response, the Windsor legal community illustrated this year that they truly understand that law needs feminism.
