Women Lawyers Work Harder for Less

Women lawyers earn less because they are billed out at significantly lower rates.  Female Lawyers Can Work Longer and Harder but Will Still Be Paid Less.  Why?  Firms don't equally value women's work?  Firms don't think clients equally value women's work?  Or so clients can get the same work product for less? (think teachers in the 19th century) 

Another report traces a similar phenomenon back to high school: A Woman With Perfect Grades is Worth the Same as a Man with a 2.0 Average
