Woman physician, negotiate thyself or lose $350,000

Forbes, June 14, 2012

The Boston Globe reports today that women physician-scientists lose more than $350,000 in salary over the course of a 30-year career and much of the blame is being placed on women's failure to ask. The blame-placing is anecdotal, but research in other professions suggests that we women have much to do with the wage, income and leadership gaps we suffer. Yet I've had the sad task of reporting here that women lawyers feel bullied out of origination credit, women in science hesitate to patent their inventions, and women in business fail to seek raises.
