The Annie Macdonald Langstaff series, the Paul-André Crépeau Centre for Private and Comparative Law, and Outlaw present Professor Angela Cameron, Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa.


This paper presents some of the results of an empirical study conducted by Angela Cameron and Vanessa Gruben. The purpose of the project is to learn about the use of donated sperm in the creation of families by speaking with people who have created their families in this way, and with people who work with these families.   Using the lenses of feminist bioethics and feminist law reform, this paper will present our findings and recommendations in two key areas: the particular legal and social concerns of women-led families, and information registries.
