Summary

"The aim of this thesis is to critically analyze Canadian and American jurisprudence related to police enforcement practices of mandatory charging policies and protection orders for battered women through the lens of a socialist feminist framework. This thesis explores the civil liability of police officers, prosecutors and other public officials in relation to inadequate enforcement of protection orders in Canada and the United States and asks whether law has the potential to act in an emancipatory fashion on behalf of women."--Page ii.
