Deux grandes dames: Bertha Wilson et Claire L’Heureux-Dubé à la Cour suprême du Canada
Excerpt

“Two women sat quietly together around a side table in a sparsely furnished office in the Supreme Court of Canada. Wilson had been appointed to the Supreme Court in 1982, the first woman in the Ottawa court’s 107-year history. Claire L’Heureux-Dubé followed in 1987. The two were reflecting upon what it meant to set toe in the sacrosanct circle restricted for generations to men. “We have to prove ourselves every time,” L’Heureux-Dubé remembered Wilson saying, “even at this court.” It was not a false warning, as time would soon tell.”
