Historically, women have been discriminated against in the workforce. They have not received equal pay, and they have been provided with fewer opportunities for advancement. While the situation has improved, gender discrimination is still an unfortunate fact of life. Unconscious attitudes may lead employers to treat people according to their notions of how men or women should be. But employers are not permitted to treat employees unequally. The law requires employers to give women and men equal salaries and equal opportunities.
KJC Law Firm’s founder, Kathy Jo Cook, has made women’s equality one of her priorities. She is a long time advocate for women, serving as a member of the Board of Directors of the Women’s Bar Association of Massachusetts for many years and serving as its President in 2008.
