You Can't Say That!

Gender pay gap amongst lawyers.
We find clear evidence of a gender gap in annual performance with respect to both measures. Male lawyers bill ten percent more hours and bring in more than twice the new client revenue than do female lawyers. We demonstrate that the differential impact across genders in the presence of young children and differences in aspirations to become a law firm partner account for a large share of the difference in performance. they're saying having kids make fathers want to earn more money and women want to stay home and care for kids? I was under the impression thinking this made you sexist.
