Abstract:     
This is a critique by two non-white law professors in the form of a conversation about the relevance of feminist law journals on their lives and scholarship. We conclude that the impression that feminist scholarship now is accepted in mainstream law reviews may be illusory and thus there is a continuing need for feminist law journals. In the past rather than creating a new type of journal, feminist law journals tend to replicate the traditional law journal model. Only the focus is different. Twenty years later not only do race and sexuality continue to separate us, but increasingly, careerism as well. The resulting lack of trust between women means that we need more open and honest conversation among and between feminists and non-feminist women. Refocused feminist law journals may be able to provide both the public and private space to pursue these conversations.
