The Center’s Director Joan C. Williams’ latest article in Bloomberg Law delves into why “Male Partners Get Paid More Than Female Partners – Lots More” with data from our study on racial and gender bias in law firms.
The pay gap between male and female law partners persists. Women get paid about 44% less than men when they are partners at law firms. Only about 1/3 of White men said they were paid less than colleagues with similar qualifications and experience, while over 2/3 of women of color, 60% of White women, and 44% of men of color said they were paid less than their colleagues.
