Abstract:     
This article examines how feminist legal theory might bolster the progressive corporate law project by providing an enhanced framework for re-envisioning and restructuring the role and place of the modern corporation in society.

First, the article presents an overview of the dominant conception of corporate law and the emerging progressive assessments of that narrative. It then offers the lens of feminist legal theory as a tool to further analyze corporate law, detailing the central components of feminist analysis and surveying the few feminist inroads made into corporate law and governance. The article's final section argues that a progressive theory of corporate law must also be a feminist theory, urges a more explicit alliance between the progressive and feminist corporate law projects, and describes several additional substantive directions that a feminist, progressive view of corporate law should take.
