ABSTRACT
The author examines the Supreme Court of Canada's judgment in Gosselin v. Quebec (Attorney General) and considers to what extent this decision represents a step backwards for women's equality in the poverty context. She concludes that the Gosselin case demonstrates yet again that the feminist critique of the Law test and its emphasis on human dignity, is well founded. In this 20th anniversary year of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms equality rights provisions, she underlines the importance of continuing to insist that governments recognize and implement the guarantees set out under section 15, and that courts interpret and enforce these rights in a manner consistent with their original objectives.
