This conference will use the passing of the tenth anniversary of the Jane Doe v. Metropolitan Police Force (Ont. S. Ct. 1998) decision to assess the state of policing and the legal regulation of the crime of sexual assault as well as feminist activism in response. The conference aims to foster public dialogue and greater public awareness regarding the treatment of the crime of sexual assault by police, lawyers and the courts, as well as inter-disciplinary research and collaboration on this topic.
