The rise of female law deans

It's striking that the Deans of the very top law schools (there are 18 for those keeping count, not 14 as the dumb-dumbs indoctrinated by USNews.com believe) are now almost 50% female:   Yale (Gerken), Stanford (Magill), Columbia (Lester), Virginia (Goluboff), Duke (incoming, Abrams), Northwestern (incoming, Yuracko), UCLA (Mnookin).  Just on the cusp of the top 18 schools, you find three more female Deans (Richardson at Irvine, Staudt at Wash U/St. Louis, O'Rourke at BU).
