What is MothersEsquire™?

 The legal profession has not seen meaningful improvement in the promotion and retention rates of women lawyers for several decades. The impact of this on lawyers with caregiving responsibilites is profound.  Women lawyers across the profession continue to see a gender gap in pay, and a lack of transparency regarding decisions about pay and promotion in law firms. Much of this disparity is tied to a "maternal wall bias" or "motherhood penalty."  Until these issues are addressed, women lawyers will continue to leave the profession and struggle to attain the recognition and respect of our male colleagues.  It is time for change.  It is time to Disrupt the Motherhood Penalty.  MothersEsquire is here to advocate for change and provide our members with information, support, and a powerful network of like-minded lawyers.
