Is There Sex Discrimination in the Legal Profession? Further Evidence on Tangible and Intangible Margins
Failure to observe differences between men and women with respect to earnings and/or promotions does not preclude the possibility that employers discriminate against women on other, intangible margins. Since female lawyers are highly educated generally, and specifically with respect to legal remedies to overt sex discrimination, it seems unlikely that employers would discriminate against them on tangible margins. Indeed, drawing from the 1984 American Bar Association Survey of Career Satisfaction/Dissatisfaction, we find no evidence of discrimination against female lawyers in terms of earnings or promotions. We do, however, find evidence of sex discrimination on several intangible margins and in terms of overall job satisfaction.
