The article illustrates the concept of the law as male by analogizing it to the medical community's treatment of the male body as the norm. It gives examples of how "male law" harms women and discusses the types of education needed to counter gender bias in the courts. 69 Chicago-Kent L. Rev. 397 (1993)
