We are feminist law and society scholars who use the lens of gender to analyze judging. Although the highest appellate courts of most jurisdictions now have at least one woman member, and in some countries such as Italy and France, women dominate lower judicial offices, the battle for a fully gender-integrated bench is far from won.
The purpose of the new Gender and Judging blog and Judicial Diversity Scholar Network (JDSN) is to promote and disseminate scholarship, facilitate the translation of scholarship about the judiciary into practice, to build a community of scholars for data collection, information sharing, and collaboration, to support the production of cutting-edge research, and to promote the career success and advancement of scholars doing this research in the academy.
