i structural inequalities and the politics of difference
I. Structural Inequalities and the Politics of Difference
  • In evaluating the justice of minority claims, whether and to what extent does justice require attending to, rather than ignoring social group differences?
  • There are at least two kinds of politics of difference – the politics of cultural difference and the politics of structural difference.
ii the accommodation of difference
II. The Accommodation of Difference
  • The big question remains how best to accommodate minority claims?
  • What is required in terms of accommodation to give public recognition to cultural diversities?

  • The focus on cultural difference might obscure the importance of structural injustices such as racism, gender inequality and disability.

III. Certain Dreadful Practices and the Limits of Tolerance
  •  Gender issues test the limits of toleration through customs and practices such as polygamy, under-age marriage and niqab.
iv multiculturalism equality and religious freedom
IV. Multiculturalism, equality and religious freedom
  • What should be done when minority claims for accommodation conflict with mainstream norms of gender equality?
  • What are the issues that emerge when equality concerns and religious freedom intersect?
  •  A review of S.2(a) decisions demonstrates that Canadian jurisprudence can sustain progressive, rights affirming decisions.
v bill 94
V. Bill 94
  • What are the rights implications of this Bill?
  • Does it forward women’s equality and promote inclusion?
  • Does it promote women’s agency and choice?
  • Can it be seen as emancipatory for all women?
  • What about the particular impact on minority women?
  • Does it encourage democratic participation?
  • Would such a Bill withstand a constitutional challenge?
the ontario niqab case
The Ontario Niqab Case
  • Denying niqab-wearing women access to justice cannot be justified on the basis that it furthers their equality.
  • Nor can this denial be justified on the basis that such exclusion is somehow liberating.
  • Effectively disenfranchising women who wear a niqab is inconsistent with promoting their substantive equality and respecting and protecting their Charter rights.
