Jean McKenzie Leiper, Ph.D will speak on her book:

Bar Codes: Women in the Legal Profession

Friday, February 1, 2008
10:00 to 11:30 am
Room 1008 Arts

Jean McKenzie Leiper (Professor Emerita, Department of Sociology, King's University College at The University of Western Ontario) examines women lawyers' attempts to reconcile their professional obligations with other aspects of their lives. It charts the life courses of women who constitute the first wave in a profession designed for and by men and in which formal codes of conduct and subtle cultural norms promote masculine values. She analyzes women's encounters with this culture and raises questions about the stresses common to many Canadian women.
