Lisa Arrowood Quoted in Article on Gender Discrimination in Medical Research


In a news blog entitled, “Cancer Researcher Wins Gender Discrimination Suit,” posted by Heidi Ledford on Nature.Com, Lisa Arrowood commented upon the recent verdict won by her client, Dr. Lynn Hlatky, in a suit against Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Arrowood noted for the reporter that it can be particularly challenging to convince a jury of gender discrimination in medical research. She argues that gender discrimination is more common in medical research than many people realize. Dr. Hlatky’s suit set forth a chain of discriminatory actions by Dana-Farber against her; the jury’s verdict vindicated her position.
