Abstract

This essay proposes possible causes of the dimunition in legal scholarship explicitly labelled 'feminist.' It considers a reduction in the overt hostility toward women in legal academics; a younger generation raised in a world with fewer barriers attributable to their gender; a younger generation raised in a world with a more complex and sophisticated understanding of the instability of gender; and the significant influence of internal criticism focusing attention on the array of categories of privilege that complicate gender. The essay concludes that significant feminist influences reside in research that is not framed as such.
