A Portrait of an SCC Tigress
Few readers likely need an introduction to Claire L’Heureux-Dubé or Constance Backhouse. L’Heureux-Dubé is the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court of Canada, while Backhouse is an internationally recognized feminist legal historian.
What happens when you put these two women together, both icons and iconoclasts in their respective fields? You get a terrific biography of the former by the latter, Claire L’Heureux-Dubé: A Life, published by UBC Press and the Osgoode Society last fall.
