European Researchers’ Night with Constitutional Judge

Our 2018 European Researchers’ Night looked into the ways law has been historically gendered. In her public talk “Man’s Law – Are Laws Truly Neutral?” constitutional judge Kateřina Šimáčková discussed the impact of law on the lives of women and men, gender equality and discrimination of women in the Czech legal system.

With this lecture we wanted to commemorate the establishment of Czechoslovakia in 1918 and the year when the Faculty of Law of Charles University opened to women.
