Lawsuit: Goldman ‘boys club’ sexualize, ignore women

Goldman Sachs could be facing a class action lawsuit if a federal court in the United States agrees to elevate a gender discrimination claim brought by two women who used to work at the New York-based investment bank.

The Daily Mail reported Thursday that H Cristina Chen-Oster and Shanna Orlich petitioned a Manhattan federal judge to allow them to sue the company “on behalf of current and former female associates and vice presidents”.

The plaintiffs claim that the atmosphere at Goldman was of “boy’s club”, characterized by binge drinking and visits to strip clubs. “Women are either sexualized or ignored,” the report quoted the plaintiffs’ filing as saying.  

Goldman Sachs rejects claims and is contesting the lawsuit, it said.
