Reading about a lawyer suing her former firm for gender discrimination, I was struck by my initial reaction that this lady was mad, she would never work in that town again. My reaction and the lack of transparency in compensation for lawyers in various firms needs to be challenged. As the article highlights, women in law firms in the US make up 45% of their associate population. Starkly, they hold only 18% of big law firm partnerships, and I would be fairly confident that the same is true around the world. This is a case worth following in the hope that it goes to trial, where finally, the very obvious pay gap for women in the industry can be investigated.  Read this to end - just to see how this lawyer is being treated for having challenged the system.
