What Women In Finance Really Think About The Ellen Pao Verdict

Barbara Clarke, an angel investor and founding member of Astia Angels NYC, which funds women-led startups, says she is grateful to Pao for pushing forward with the case, even though she wasn’t surprised by the verdict. “Anita Hill's testimony almost 20 years ago didn't keep Clarence Thomas from becoming a Supreme Court Justice, but it did change the way men treated me in the office as a young, recent graduate. So, losing in court doesn't mean that we have lost,” Clarke says.
