#ChooseToChallenge is this year’s theme for International Women’s Day. It’s a theme Lady Justice Apparel™ embraces daily. It’s kind of our thing. Bringing together our legal education and design to further the understanding of the law and Canadian legal history through our creative and activist-based designs.
That’s why we’re thrilled to be celebrating our first International Women’s Day by partnering with Lerners LLP to design a limited edition, the #LernersExclusive T-shirt.
As one of Ontario’s leading law firms when it comes to gender parity and their ongoing commitment to developing, promoting and supporting the interests of women in the law and in the community, we’re excited to be partnering with Lerners LLP.
Through our partnership with Lerners LLP, we’re offering a #LernersExclusive Edition of our “A Woman’s Place…is Always on the Supreme Court” t-shirt to mark International Women’s Day 2021.
Together, we’re celebrating that a woman’s place is not only in the law, but anywhere and everywhere the law is discussed, and important decisions are made.

About the Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic
The Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic offers legal services and representation, trauma-informed counselling and multilingual interpretation to diverse women who have experienced violence. They cultivate women’s skills and resilience by fostering their safety, dignity, and equality, and they amplify women’s voices to create individual and collective change.
The Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic commemorates the aspirations of Barbra Teena Schlifer, a young lawyer who was murdered on the day of her call to the Bar of Ontario on April 11, 1980. Barbra’s friends, who were to be her law partners, along with many others, established a Clinic in her honour to commemorate her life and to make the difference that Barbra had hoped to make as a lawyer.
Last year, they answered more than 5,100 calls, offered an astounding 80 individual group sessions, and provided a combination of services to nearly 9,000 women.
