Trapped by a Paradox: Speculations on Why Female Law Professors Find It Hard to Fit into Law School Cultures
Moran, Beverly I.
Feminist psychologists postulate that women are more people focused than men and therefore less likely to be attracted to rule oriented cultures that do not take into account personal differences and needs. This work postulates that the opposite is true of males and females who are attracted to law school teaching. Instead of rule oriented men and people oriented women, the legal academy is populated by women who believe that rules are meant to protect the weak against the tyranny of the strong and who then find themselves in female cultures ruled by men.
