History of the Network

In 2012 a meeting was held at the University of Oslo for female company law scholars. The starting point was the realisation that female company law professors are a minority even in the otherwise relatively egalitarian Nordic countries. A result of the meeting was an informal network for female company law scholars.

This informal network was revitalised in 2015, and given a clearer form and a new name, based on the belief that female scholars in the male-dominated area of business law benefit from having a forum for open and inspiring discussions about our common area of interest and about the joys and challenges of being female scholars. The scope of the network was broadened to include all female scholars in the typically male-dominated areas of scholarship pertaining to business, including but not limited to all relevant legal disciplines, economics, political science and sociology.

Since 2015, the network has been known as Daughters of Themis: International Network of Female Business Scholars, and is with its annual international workshops and steadily increasing membership becoming an important meeting place for female business scholars around the world.

Female business scholars interested in becoming members may sign up online.
