Two out of fourteen is pathetic (two out of sixteen if you count the “double-dip” of Professors McGinniss and Rappaport).  But kudos to Steven Calabresi for co-authoring with a student.

Were the students at Northwestern really so unresourceful that they could only drum up one female Con Law scholar in the entire United States?  Or did they not care?  Are the law reviews’ faculty advisors totally uninterested and uninvolved?

If you shout out for “all the ladies in the house” and hear the echo of your own voice, that’s not a good sign for gender equality.

    Perhaps the lack of women is an originalist homage to the Founding Fathers?
