I'm thinking of going to this conference, and I wanted to let babblers know about it. It's incredibly inexpensive given the amazing speakers they've booked. If any babblers decide to go, please PM me and we can meet up. In Ottawa. In March. Brrrrrr....

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.
