The State of Rape: Ten Years after Jane Doe (CJWL 22 2 2011)

This issue of the Canadian Journal of Women and the Law documents and re-imagines feminist struggles for justice and equality for women who have been raped. The articles arise out of a conference convened by Elizabeth Sheehy and organized by Jane Doe at the University of Ottawa in March 2009 to celebrate and assess progress and retrenchment in the decade since Jane Doe won her twelve-year legal battle against the Toronto police for sex discrimination and negligence in the policing of rape.1 The conference made manifest the depth and breadth of feminist commitment and advocacy: seventy speakers from Canada and around the world presented their work to a sold-out audience of 350 activists, lawyers, students, researchers, and academics. The eight articles in this issue formed a critical part of the conference and, in various ways, respond to the social and legal changes feminists have pursued through more than three decades of reform and activism in Canada. 2
