Gender and Race in Legal Academy: Retrenchment?

I was intrigued by this post from Ann Bartow over at feministlawprofessors on the absence women academic as presenters at NYU Law's colloquia series (ht: and this post from Rebecca Tushnet on the underrepresentation of women as writers of law review notes (ht:

My unscientific sense is that we're going backwards in terms of both gender and race representation in law schools. I've seen conferences will all white and mostly male presenters. Law school faculties do not seem to care today as much as they once did about gender and race underrepresentation. I don't know whether this is true or not, but that is my sense.
