Corporate law scholarship is dominated by traditional (masculist) forms of inquiry that ignore the sources and consequences of corporatism and effectively support the business corporation as a situs of male domination. Professors Lahey and Salter suggest that a challenge to the dominant perspective must come from groups, such as women, that have been socially marginalized and have not therefore fully internalized the terms of the discourse of bureaucratic capitalism. Only when female legal scholars actively study and promote feminist values such as participation, decentralization, and power sharing will a serious challenge to the patriarchal mentality of the business world be possible.
