PlayStation sued in California over alleged gender discrimination - Axios

The former IT security analyst, Emma Majo, is seeking court approval to expand her effort into a class action on behalf of women who've worked for PlayStation in the past few years.

The suit alleges violations of the United States' Equal Pay Act, saying: "Sony discriminates against female employees, including those who are female and those who identify as female, in compensation and promotion and subjects them to a work culture predominated by men."

Majo alleges that she was ignored by a manager who only responded to men, was passed over for promotions and was terminated this year after submitting a gender bias complaint to the company.

She says other women at PlayStation struggled to get promoted at the same rate as men.

Majo notes in her suit that Sony says she was terminated because of the closure of an internal department, though she says she wasn't in that department


That's gross if true.
