Bertha Wilson was sworn in as Canada’s first female Supreme Court Justice. She was appointed to the Ontario Court of Appeal in 1975, where she captured public attention through her imaginative and humane decisions in cases involving human rights, ethnic and sexual discrimination, matrimonial property and child custody. Wilson was named to the Court by Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau just 17 days before the Charter of Rights and Freedoms was enacted.
