Analysis Historically within our society men and women have been brought up toward different social roles and careers Changes in todays workforce have meant a divergence from the past-accepted roles played by women in the workforce These stereotypes however pose challenges for men in todays society most specifically in jobs that are predominantly considered male oriented This means they must learn to be comfortable with women who are assertive as in Ann Hopkins case and who do not fit the preconceived notion of being nurturers or supportive Upon reviewing the files we believe that Ann Hopkins should be reinstated into Price Waterhouse In addition we believe that Ms Hopkins should be made a full partner into the firm and she should be recompensed for lost wages This recommendation is based not on Ann Hopkins alleged behavior but is instead based on the failings of Price Waterhouse to prevent sexual discrimination In 1984 Ann Hopkins filed suit charging Price Waterhouse with sexual discrimination This suit claims the reason Ms Hopkins was not promoted to partner is because she is a woman and all claims made by the firm regarding her interpersonal skills were biased As we look at the chronological sequence of events leading up to Ann Hopkins suit we can begin to see a discriminatory pattern begin to emerge As was stated in the company background Price Waterhouse in the early 80s had a total of 662 partners within the United States Of these there was a cumulative total of seven female partners Partnership is considered a lifetime appointment as retirement of a partner must come voluntarily or with a 75 majoring vote of the entire partnership Therefore the candidacy admission process requires that all members of this self-same partnership provide an evaluationcomment on all candidates regardless of whether they have had personal contact or not Those partners whom have had no contact with the candidate have used third party as their source
