Biographical history

Professor Beverley Baines is one of the founders of feminist legal studies in Canada. She obtained a BA from McGill University, and an LL.B. from Queen's University. She co-coordinated the Women's Studies Program in the Faculty of Arts and Science between 1991 and 1993; served as Associate Dean of the Faculty of Law from 1994 until 1997; and was Head of the Department of Women’s Studies (now Gender Studies) from 2004 until 2011.
Baines was involved in the movement to entrench women's equality rights in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom. Her long-term research project is to analyze a quarter century of Supreme Court of Canada decisions pertaining to women’s equality rights under the Charter. Most recently this research has focused is on women’s intersectional rights claims involving religious freedom and gender equality in the contexts of polygamy, faith-based family law arbitration, and state imposed niqab bans.
