That was the convoluted bit of legalese used by Google to acknowledge that it paid out $118 million to settle a class action lawsuit—which accused the company of systematically underpaying women. The settlement covers about 15,500 women employed in California by Google in 236 different job titles since September 14, 2013. 

 

An AMA with Ghazala Wahab! We are delighted to announce a conversation with the author of ‘Born a Muslim: Some Truths About Islam in India’—which is a briliiant and nuanced exploration of what it means to be a Muslim in India today. Ghazala is also the co-founder of the national security and aerospace magazine FORCE—where she writes on terrorism, Jammu and Kashmir and all forms of extremism, left and right. So get ready to ask her your questions this Saturday, June 18, 2022 at 5:30pm. Be sure to sign up for your slot here

 

PS: If you want to know more about Ghazala’s writing, check out the review of her book in The Hindu and Business Standard, interview in The Telegraph—and her take on the hijab row in Mint.
