Abstract:     
This essay discusses the predicament of women law professors in an era when the representation of women on law faculties has reached a "critical mass." It explores three mechanisms for reproducing gender inequality: (1) self-fulfilling stereotypes, (2) gender-specific comparison groups, and (3) the accumulation of small disadvantages. Chamallas uses stories from her own and colleagues' experiences to illustrate contemporary forms of bias.
