I joined a national firm in 1978 and have worked in various national, regional and local practices. I'll admit few have female managers and my current firm is the first to have appointed a female partner. However I never felt women were being promoted unfairly or just to meet some sort of feminist quota.

I just don't believe this is an issue in most practices.

One wonders who was surveyed here - maybe it was just the ultra-PC big four?

I'm generally curious.
