According to a survey of working parents done by Pew Research Center (2015), it is found that 39 percent of mothers took time off to take care of their children or family and 27 percent responded that they have to quit their career. On the contrary, around 24 percent of fathers reported having taken time off and only 10 percent have to leave their job due to family obligations. In order to combine work and family responsibilities, women have greater recourse to part-time work. Therefore, women tend to work shorter hours and have more career interruptions than men which lead to a passive impact on their promotion prospects and profession advancement as it also reduced women chances to have a financially rewarding
The earnings ratio in 1990 was highest among younger workers, gradually decreasing with age, and then increasing slightly around retirement. Women who are 16-24 years old earned nearly 87% of what comparably aged men earned, whereas women 35-39 years old earned 67% and women 50-54 years old earned 58%. The earnings ratio increased slightly at retirement age, with women 65 and older earning 67% of the male wage. When looking at education men without education earned particularly low salaries, in contrast to the very high pay of men with postgraduate degrees. Black women’s equivalent salaries ranged from 71% to 84% that of Black men.
This reduces women’s lifetime earnings and affects their pension and social security. Even though both genders have the same experience, are equally trained, and possess the same degree the pay is not equal. Women and men are not treated equally in the workplace, even though it is the twenty-first century. Although the wage gap has existed since the 1800’s, the increased participation of women in the labor force correlates with the decrease of the wage gap. The wage gap has dwindled over the years; however, the progress has slowed down in the past two decades.
Although women and men still work in different careers they still predominate in different fields. Notably, within the same company women predominate in lower value and lower paid jobs. Women often work in health education or customer service where the work is lower valued and lower paid than those fields that are dominated by men. According to a census conducted in the United States of America in 2004 “ This gap has been static, as women have consistently earned only 77 percent of what their male counterparts earn..”(U.S Census 2004) Additionally, segregation is frequently tied to traditions and stereotypes. Even though in some cases this may reflect personal choices, traditions, and stereotypes still carry much weight for example, this is evident in the choice of educational path and professional careers young women choose.
Something they both shared, was when they were typically married. Most women were married at age twenty-five, and it was only a couple years older for the men, at age twenty-seven to twenty-eight. Mothers usually had six children in their lifetime, which was partly due to their early marriages (Mitchell 142). One difference between the classes, was that children and infants in poorer families were often more likely to die than than those born into wealthier families. A main reason was that people in the upper class had better living conditions than the lower.
Women in regressive and unfortunate cultural beliefs have been considered subordinate to men. So we are on the 69th rank on gender inequality index out of 146 countries. We have issues on infant mortality front, empowerment, employment segregation, wage disparity and education attainment. 48 out of every 100,000 woman die delivering their babies. According to a 2008 report, Thai men earn 8.78% higher than the woman even though they reported to have worked harder and longer than me.
Today, in America many people do not get treated equally for various reasons. The gender pay gap is a large issue that directly concerns a little over fifty percent of the world. Women construct 50.6 percent of America’s population and still do not get paid as much as their male counterparts. Women receive just about 80 cents per one male dollar for doing the same work. There is a law that says women need to be paid equally and that law is not being enforced.
Public information collected by the International Trade Union Confederation, shows the global gender pay gap ranges from 3 percent all the way up to 51 percent. Another way women are treated unfairly in the workplace is the effort they put in. Studies have shown women typically have to work longer to earn a promotion than a man. It is proven that women are 15% less likely than men to get promoted. Social out casting is another thing that affects women and young girls today.
For some jobs like mining and construction work, they find women to weak. For occupations where a real leader is needed, around 15% of the companies will quicker hirer a man.

In 2010 women earned 81 % on average of what men earned. it is a fact that younger women are now
