Whenever asked "How is it a mans world?" people point out CEOs male. Has anyone ever claimed they missed promotion/ job offer because female?
Can I have examples of such lawsuits, whether the outcome was successful or not?

They say it's a man's world
Well, that cannot be denied
But what good's a man's world
Without a woman by his side
And so i will wait
Until that moment you decide
That i'm your man
And you're my girl
That i'm the sea
And you're the pearl
It takes two, baby,
It takes two

Yes. I was actually told I was not going to be promoted because I was pregnant. An employment attorney told me it would be very hard to prove and may not financially be worth what I would spend to pursue it. But it certainly happens.

Yes, of course people have experienced that.
Women miss out on promotions because the personality traits that look like "leadership" in a man get negative connotations in a woman. We subconsciously expect men to be competitive and women to be cooperative. Thus an overconfident, assertive man who intimidates people reads as successful, whereas a woman who behaves the exact same way reads as unfriendly.
Women also miss out on highly demanding jobs because there is so much cultural pressure on them to spend time at home taking care of their children. Something like 90% of the wage gap only applies to mothers (and young women who plan to become mothers), not to single women.

Billions of dollars have been paid in lawsuits over this exact issue...to those women who didnt get promotions explicitly because they are female...

It doesn't have to be a man's world. Men have to change their attitudes toward women and be willing to work under the management of women.

Thousands of people have claimed they missed out on promotions because they are female. Many have even won lawsuits for precisely that reason.
Have you been living under a rock?

It's actually the opposite. Nobody ever needs to hire more men in the workplace or for top positions, but they do need to hire more women.
