At its core, the #MeToo movement has been about voice—speaking up after generations of silence endured by victims of sexual harassment and bullying in the workplace. That voice can be at its most powerful in the pages of a court complaint, where years of pain and frustration are described in the plaintiffs’ allegations.

A number of lawsuits have been filed by women that allege gender discrimination in their law firm’s compensation and promotion practices. The specific allegations in these suits generally reveal more than examples of disparate pay and a failure to promote. They often provide a glimpse into other negative behaviors that confirm what research has long revealed: sexual harassment and related negative behaviors in the workplace are rooted in discrimination and power imbalances.
