Christine Hurt on Blogging and Gender
Christine Hurt (law, Marquette) at the Conglomerate discusses the issue of the disparity between male and female law professor bloggers. According to my latest law professor blogger census (November 2005), about 75% are male and 25% are female.
Part of the reason may be that female law professors are still severly under-represented in the legal academy. According to a Legal Times article, about 25% of fully-tenured law professors are female. In total, about 34% of law professors are female. There’s more equality when it comes to more junior female law professors. Over the last ten years or so, about 45% of newly hired law professors have been women.
