Violence against Women in Law Schools
AbstractIn her article, Scassa discusses the existence of a pattern of violence against women in society generally and in law schools specifically. She examines threats and acts of discrimination that have been experienced by both women who are teachers and women who are students in law schools across Canada. By exploring and defining the concept of violence, Scassa demonstrates how accepted. commonplace events that occur within law school walls are indeed acts of violence which must be recognized as such and dealt with accordingly. Scassa argues that through a pattern of harassment, women have been silenced and that this "silencing" is a form of violence that must be stopped.
