Good Law | Bad Law #132 - Eighty Cents: A Conversation about the Gender Pay Gap w/ Lucy Marsh

80 cents?   That’s what women, on average, earn compared to men in comparable jobs. 

 

Aaron Freiwald, Managing Partner of Freiwald Law and host of the weekly podcast, Good Law | Bad Law, is joined by Professor Lucy Marsh, from the Sturm College of Law at the University of Denver, to discuss the gender pay gap.

 

Although women have made a lot of progress in narrowing the pay gap over the last several decades, the disparity in pay remains a real and costly problem.  For women of color, the pay gap is even greater. 

 

Professor Marsh did her part, taking on the University of Denver in a lawsuit challenging the significant pay difference between male and female law professors.  She won her case, reaching a settlement that should address the historic under-compensating of female profs.  Beyond her own experience, Professor Marsh offers insight and encouragement to other women to step forward and speak out against pay inequality in the workplace.

 

Enjoy the episode and please tell us your thoughts.  How do we close the pay gap and ensure everyone is compensated fairly for their work?
