Revealed: females make up less than 10 per cent of top 100's equity partner ranks
You seem to assume that PQE alone forms the basis for a meritocratic approach and that the woman with 2-3 years less experience in real terms is, by virtue of that alone, less worthy of partnership than her male peer who has had that 2-3 years on the job experience. That is hardly a meritocratic approach.
In my experience very average male associates are made partner purely as a result of time spent, whereas a female associate needs to be exceptional.
