Why Aren't There More Female Law Prof Bloggers?
On law.com: Where Are All the Female Law Bloggers?, by C.C. Holland:
What's behind this seeming disparity [in the number of the female law bloggers compared to male law bloggers]? There are three basic theories in circulation. ...
- Women law bloggers are out there, you just don't see them.
- Women don't have the same time to blog as men.
- Women are more prone to professional or personal attack, so they avoid blogging.
For the record, 38% of the bloggers in our LawProfessor Blogs Network are women. For more commentary, see:
- Above the Law
- Adjunct Law Prof Blog
- Feminist Law Professors (Part 1, Part 2)
- Law Librarian Blog
- Legal Blog Watch
- Legal Histor Blog

Just a guess, but could the fact that women do about 80 percent of childcare have something to do with it? As a largely discretionary--and typically nonremunerative--activity one would expect it to be done primarily in leisure time. Then again, blogging is a good way to get away from your kids, so we may see more of it from both genders in the future.
