healthy legal minds x lnfb mcgill

This special photo campaign is a collaboration between McGill's Law Needs Feminism Because Chapter and Healthy Legal Minds : Juristes en santé. The campaign aims to draw attention to the issue of access to mental health and wellness (or lack thereof) as a law student or lawyer. Unlike in past years, it will not be photographing faces — instead, it will be capturing hands representing a connection to mental health. Photography by Ana Lucía Lobos.

When the Feminist Legal Forum hosts its annual round tables, law students of diverse backgrounds, interests and experiences have the chance to talk about many of the ways that law and feminism intersect. Often, the conversation will turn to the ways that the legal profession, and the law more generally, doesn’t always leave room for feminist-focused conversations about equality. Time and again, students will comment that it can be easy to feel like you’re the only one asking these important questions, and in turn, like sometimes you shouldn’t be. Every round table leaves participants feeling reaffirmed in their passions and emboldened in their shared experiences. Many students come away from these discussions with a renewed sense of their supportive and active feminist community at Robson Hall. This campaign was intended to bring this conversation to a wider audience, and so it did! Students, faculty and staff alike took the opportunity to answer the question, “why‎ does law need feminism?” Here’s what they said. This photo campaign was run by Robson Hall's Feminist Legal Forum, with photography and graphic design by Ingrid Ruiz.

windsor's second 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 all of you. Photography by Angela Zhu and graphic design by Paris Wildman-Sisk. Both Angela and Paris are Windsor law students.
