Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg writes, “When I'm sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court] and I say, 'When there are nine,' people are shocked. But there'd been nine men, and nobody's ever raised a question about that.” (Georgetown, 2016). The JPIC Calendar for March invites you to explore the lives and initiatives of those who made it possible for women to sit on Supreme Court today and who continue to fight to overcome the systematic sexism that still exists in Canada and the United States.
Looking at the history of our countries through the lens of Women’s History also challenges us to explore the underlying systematic gender inequality that permeates this history and is still prevalent today. We hope you will join with others to explore this reality and act on behalf of justice for all
