Report Attributes Pay Disparities Between Women and Men Partners at Law Firms to Sexual Discrimination

A recent Temple University finds that pay disparities between women partners and male partners at law firms are not based upon lower productivity, as traditionally believed. In fact, according to the researchers women partners are as productive as their male counterparts. Consequently, the researchers concluded that female partners may earn less, despite their productivity, because of intentional sexual discrimination. The report is entitled, Gender Gap in Law Firm Partner Compensation.
