Employees, be careful ! Sexual discrimination costs 1.5 million pounds

Julie Bower, a 35-year-old analyst, received record compensation for moral damage and sexual discrimination of 1.5 million pounds.

Not sexual harassment, but sexual discrimination is meant here. Millions of Russian women know this treatment: “I am a man and consequently clever, you are a woman and your lot is to bear children and cook meals.”

Julia Bower, a graduate from the University of Oxford business school of London, was employed by Schroder Securities. Since the very first day of her employment, she had to resist male managers who hampered her career. The men succeeded: Julie Bower left her prestigious work with annual earnings of 120,000 pounds.

Cases of discrimination were published and proved in court: for work that made a great profit to the company, Julie’s male colleagues received premiums at the rate of 440,000 and 650,000 pounds, while Julie received only 25,000 pounds. The projects she developed have never been implemented. In fact, her male colleagues caused financial harm to the company neglecting her projects.

Julie’s stresses and struggle against the woman-haters caused cancer. And, having no money, the ill woman started a struggle for her human rights.

So, yesterday, a London court passed a verdict: Schroder Securities will pay 1,412,823 pounds as a compensation to Julie Bower. The company will also pay all court costs as the loser. Therefore, we may say that the oppressors are to be felt for now: the company will not recover such losses.

Similar suits are extremely popular in the West; however, the number of victories is insignificant, as it is always difficult to prove a case of a sexual harassment. Svetlana Tarasova London

Several years ago, a prominent Indonesian businessman who now resides in Canada, insisted on meeting me in a back room of one of Jakarta's posh restaurants. An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
