Zia Mody, founder of AZB Partners on how legal industry differs for men and women?
When you are a female barrister, the pressure for some reason is incredibly high. It could be that being a barrister — before the court every day — is a fairly stressful arduous battle. This takes a toll on women, who have other tasks at home, more than their male counterparts.
When it comes to the corporate legal world, life is a little less stressful. Yet, the dropout rate for women remains high especially after their marriage or their first child.
