In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • Editorial / Éditorial
  • Gillian Calder (bio) and Rebecca Johnson (bio)

Welcome to the Canadian Journal of Women and the Law’s Special Issue on “Law, Film and Feminism.” As you will see in the coming pages, our authors are grappling with their questions of law and feminism through the powerful medium of film. It seemed only fitting that an introduction to this volume should do the same. So, grab a bowl of popcorn—and check us out at < >. See you at the movies. . .

Nous vous souhaitons la bienvenue au numéro spécial de la Revue Femmes et Droit intitulé « Droit, Cinéma et Féminisme ». Comme vous le constaterez vous-mêmes dans les pages qui suivent, nos auteures discutent des questions de droit et de féminisme telles que représentées dans le média puissant du film. Il nous semble donc opportun de faire la même chose dans l’introduction à ce numéro. Alors, préparez-vous un bol de maïs soufflé–et venez nous retrouver à l’adresse < >. Rendez-vous au cinéma. . .
