Why aren’t women getting ahead?
And what can be done about it? (Okay, technically that’s two questions, but bear with me.)
What’s the Problem?
Is the problem that women don’t ask? Or are they asking, but still not being rewarded? Are men just more willing to engage in ridiculous self-aggrandizing behavior to get ahead?
Or maybe this isn’t a “problem” at all, but a series of choices, freely made because of different personal preferences? (Is the personal still political, or is that totally passé?)
In a world where women have made up nearly half of law school classes for a generation, but are still a small minority of law firm partners, judges, law school deans, etc., these are questions worth asking.
And, even if it annoys some people, I’m going to ask them.
So, let’s get started!
I’d love to have guest posts on the topic, so let me know if there’s something you’d like to bring to the discussion.
