Just a short post to raise a question that’s discussed on Law.com today, which is why American legal blogs seem to be populated by boys and abandoned by women.
That doesn’t seem to be the case here at Slaw. Is that something about Slaw? Or Canadian law? Or simply that our focus on legal information, technology and research isn’t the same as those blogs that Law.com was looking at?
It offers three theories (none of which is particularly compelling:
Theory #1: Women law bloggers are out there, you just don’t see them. ((Women bloggers aren’t as relentlessly self-promoting))
Theory #2: Women don’t have the same time to blog as men.
Theory #3: Women are more prone to professional or personal attack, so they avoid blogging.
Any reactions to the article anyone?
