This essay explores the feminist debates around gender difference and gender equality in the context of the Supreme Court of Canada's Pelech trilogy. It argues that the Court's approach to the enforcement of separation agreements does not adequately account for gender difference. Based on feminist critiques of difference, the essay then suggests an approach which might allow us to move beyond the dilemmas that difference presents to feminist legal theory and practice, and to the enforcement of separation agreements in particular.
