Around half of the 60 women considering suing Google are current employees, Finberg said, adding that over a dozen women admitted that discrimination at work played a role in their leaving the firm.

Despite Google's fervent denials of pay gap allegations, Finberg says that around 30 of the 60 women he interviewed indicated that there were distinct inequalities and prejudices that are detrimental to women working at the tech giant. However, some of these women are claiming that they only get paid two thirds of a man's wage.

"Google is not alone in Silicon Valley", Finberg said.

This all started when one of Google's software engineers, who is a man by the way, chose to leak a ten-page manifestation in which he talked about Google's pay disparities.

"It's demoralizing", one former senior female Googler, who recently left the firm told the Guardian, requesting anonymity over fears of retribution. "There's something subconsciously that happens where you do start to question the value that you're adding to the company", she added.

The manager said that dealing with frequent sexism in the workplace and helping other women navigate the discrimination they were facing took a toll on her and contributed to her decision to quit. "It takes emotional energy that builds up over time".

She claimed she regularly dealt with sexist remarks, such as comments about her looks, and that she felt it was discriminatory when she was denied a promotion despite her achievements and large workload.

"I was watching male co-workers progress at a faster rate than myself".

"Sixty people is a really small sample size".

"There are always going to be differences in salary based on location, role, and performance, but the process is blind to gender", he claimed.

Amid the scandal Google faces due to former employees online posting, Google's CEO Sundar Pichai was to give a highly anticipated speech regarding gender existing issues.
