succumbing to peer pressure

File under we've come a long way, baby?

Former UCLA professor Janet Conney recently won a sexual discrimination suit against the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute and Hospital. " was discovered during court proceedings that her UCLA department had a secret reserve of money that they used to supplement the salaries of male faculty members only." This is in 2007 people. Yes, most common forms of sexual discrimination these days are more subtle, less egregious. But there are still people in power out there who blatantly believe that male employees deserve higher pay strictly based on their possession of a dick.
