About the Author:

Jena McGill’s research centers on equality law and human rights, and particularly on questions related to gender, sexuality and the law.  She has researched and published on topics including sexual exploitation and abuse in United Nations peacekeeping operations; constitutional privacy rights under section 8 of the Charter; Canadian prison policy and the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW); and the Supreme Court of Canada’s equality jurisprudence under section 15 of the Charter. In recent research conducted with two University of Ottawa Faculty of Law colleagues, Professor Suzanne Bouclin and Professor Amy Salyzyn, and with support from a SSHRC Knowledge Synthesis Grant, Professor McGill explored risks and opportunities relating to the use of mobile and web-based apps to enhance access to justice.
