THE STUDY “WOMEN IN THE LEGAL PROFESSION”

In September 2017, on the eve of the Lawyers’ Day Ukrainian Women Lawyers Association “JurFem” conducted the study “Women in the legal profession”. 365 female respondents filled in the anonymous online survey questionnaire

The results of the study show that among the surveyed women lawyers:

  • 46.5% are discriminated in access to the profession
  • 41.5% needed to prove their professionalism and ability to perform certain work in a situation in which male lawyer was not required to do so
  • 36.9% suffered from sexual harassment in their professional activity

Although the servey data are not representative, it reflects gender aspects of the legal profession
