"Les Femmes juges feront-elles veritablement une difference? Reflexions sur leur presence depuis vingt ans a la Cour supreme du Canada.".

First, the authors analyze the statistics to demonstrate that women judges have occupied a unique position within the highest judicial institution of Canada by writing a very large proportion of dissenting opinions. Second, they ask a number of questions to guide a deeper study about the true nature of the "difference" that women judges make and, potentially, of members of groups historically underrepresented among the Canadian judiciary (Journal Abstract).
