Standing Up Against Gender Discrimination
Since 1964, federal law has outlawed discrimination in employment on the basis of one’s sex. But nearly half a century later, inequality and sexism still pervade many workplaces — in hiring, in the pay gap, in gender roles and in virtually every facet of employment.
If you believe that you suffered adversely from gender discrimination in employment, The Womack Law Firm can pursue your legal remedies. Our Houston employment law practice has successfully represented women (and men) in Harris County and throughout Texas.

Experienced Advocates For Victims Of Gender Bias At Work
Trial lawyer Mark T. Womack can effectively advocate for clients under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Pay Act, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act and other state and federal laws that specifically protect women from workplace discrimination arising from patriarchal or misogynist attitudes. You may have grounds for legal action if you have experienced:
- Failure to hire (e.g., male-dominated occupations)
- Failure to promote (the glass ceiling)
- Less pay for the same or similar work
- Sexual harassment in any of its forms
- Adverse actions for taking leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or maternity leave
- Retaliation or termination for filing claims or reporting abuse
