It is no secret that women are grossly underrepresented and underpaid by comparison to their similarly qualified male peers in the upper echelons of the legal profession. According to NAWL’s 2017 annual survey report, approximately 19 percent of women in AmLaw 200 firms make equity partner, 97 percent of firms report that their top earner is a man, and 70 percent have only one or no women as their top 10 earners. Additionally, according to Law360’s 2018 glass ceiling report, women account for only 12 percent of the highest firm leadership roles as managing partner, chairman, or CEO. Women are also leaving law firms in droves at the more senior levels. By most accounts, a woman’s prospects at a law firm are particularly bleak if she is a working mother, and worse still if she is a minority.
