Twitter is facing a lawsuit from two of its female former employees over allegations that the company discriminated against women workers in its recent round of layoffs.
The suit "accus[es] the social media company of disproportionately targeting female employees for layoffs," according to Reuters.
The suit reportedly claims that the company "laid off 57% of its female workers compared to 47% of men" following the takeover of the company by billionaire Elon Musk.
Massachusetts attorney Shannon Liss-Riordan claimed that female employees at Twitter "had targets on their backs" upon Musk's takeover.
