Gender bias is not limited to male judges and male attorneys making demeaning remarks or requests to female lawyers. During my 40 years-plus of civil practice, countless female clients routinely confided in me that they would never retain a female lawyer for whatever reason. In a recent New York Times survey, 70 percent of female office workers preferred having a male boss instead of a female boss. Fifty percent of the male workers could work for a female or a male. Go figure.
