  • You could also argue from this data that part time take up seems to have little impact on the number of female equity partners. As seen in the top table, as part time take up descends from less than 10%, the number of female partners remains relatively high at a more than half the firms. Ie, these firms have high levels of female partners for reasons other than the part-time schemes.

  • @Rhubarb. So are you saying that to make the big bucks in the equity partnership women have to sacrifice their family time? I'd like to see more research on that.

  • it would be interesting to see research on part-time working split along gender lines. It's my feeling that an increasing number of men want to work flexibly but are ashamed to do so for fear of being branded as "unmanly"

  • Typical of The Lawyer to be focusing on the City. if you come up here to the northwest you'd see plenty of firms that allow their partners to work part-time but they don;t make a fuss about it!

  • @Everett Couldn't agree more. Men don't want to give up their role of being the "breadwinner", their sense of self-worth is predicated on this
