Female professors sue Rutgers over pay inequity

Five female Rutgers University professors on Oct. 14 filed a lawsuit against Rutgers, claiming their salaries are significantly lower than male professors with comparable qualifications.

“We as professors are working so hard to inspire our students, to expand the knowledge base, and to work with our communities and policymakers to solve social problems, and we should know that within our academic community, principles of economic justice will be safeguarded,” said professor Nancy Wolff in a New York Times story by Jillian Kramer.
