Main Article Content
The particular vulnerability to sexual assault that is experienced by women who are Aboriginal, disabled, or Black was discussed by the Coalition in its factum in O’Conner (paragraphs 17 to 24). Other cases will expose the particular operation and intersection of more inequalities that continue not to be acknowledged or challenged by a legal system that fails to invoke the guarantees of section 15. It is material to acknowledge that neither the O’Conner case nor the present appeal represent all the dynamics of power and institutionalized oppression to which women are subject.
