This woman held events to empower women—and men sued for discrimination

In August 2016, Claire Wasserman started an organization, Ladies Get Paid, based in New York City, for women to swap career and leadership tips.

“The lack of women in leadership roles disturbed me and I was craving a space where women could support one another by openly sharing their professional struggles,” her website states. She recently produced a conference for 150 women and has over 20,000 who connect through her network.

Today, however, she faces tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees after settling lawsuits with several men who sued her organization for excluding them from its events. “I never once thought what I was doing was controversial or offensive,” Wasserman said.
