"Women Suddenly Scarce Among Justices' Clerks"
addresses the declining numbers of female clerks in the U.S.
Supreme Court. Greenhouse reports that only 7 of the 37
clerkships went to women for the 2006-7 term.
The article has been reprinted in the Feminist Law
Professors Blog, and the topic is being widely
addressed on the blawgosphere. For example, see:
