On Wednesday evening, Ewald ... [cached]

On Wednesday evening, Ewald said she always believed she would win her case.

"I am happy," she said. "I hope this can help other women who still experience discrimination in the workplace."
Since leaving the consulate, Ewald, who lives in Minneapolis, has been a partner in Tysvar, a firm that helps Norwegian companies get established in the Midwest.
Ewald, a Twin Cities native who spent many years in Norway, took the educational post, while Anders Davidson, planning and business development manager for 3M Company's international operation, took the business post.
In the lawsuit, Ewald said she thought the money for the two positions would be split evenly between the two.

The suit, which is big news in Norway, alleges that Ewald was paid $40,000 less than a male counterpart in a comparable job, and that she was harassed and humiliated when she raised a ruckus.

Ewald, a Twin Cities native and University of Minnesota graduate, had lived in Norway more than 20 years before returning to Minneapolis in October 2008 to take a job with her adopted nation's consulate as director of higher education and research. Fluent in Norwegian, she worked at the consulate from 2008 to 2011, promoting joint research by educational institutions between the two countries and educational exchanges for students and professors.
Paid $70,000 a year, she said, she learned that the consulate had hired a man to a comparable position for business and development at $110,000.
"I was shocked; I was stunned," she said.
The embassy has denied in court that it harassed or discriminated against Ewald and said she and the other employee were not doing comparable jobs.
