This environment must be upheld in order for true success and advancements to be reached as a whole in the workplace. The full potential of workplaces today are all held back by an ongoing issue in society: sexism. Sexism is the discrimination of an individual due to their gender which is usually caused by an attached stigma to that sex. This type of discrimination has been targeting women in the workplace for a long time now, suppressing the real potential of what they can bring. It is being proven by professionals that sexism towards women in the workplace is being shown through various forms of discrimination in policies, its effects on women’s health and jobs, and the leading solutions that seem to be arising from it.
We see the feminist theory in the documentary when the managers or supervisors sexually abuse of their workers. They take the advantage of them being stronger and being in a higher position to manipulate their workers. So, they force them to have sex and afterward they laugh at them because they won’t listen to them and won’t believe them. Which in some of the cases they believe it and don’t report it at the moment and when they report it to the police and to the company it’s too hard to get evidence. Like in the case of one of the janitors, she reported what happened to her too

During the time this speech was given many employers refused to hire women, because of their core belief that women were physically and mentally inferior than men. This sexist ideolodgy disenfranchised women from many career opportunities and receiving equal or fair pay as their male counterparts.

These limitations by such reforms although negative and the opposite of protection for women workers as established by the Muller v.

In the United States, the workforce still faces many issues of a discrepancy between the genders regarding the amount that each is paid. According to The American Association of University Women, it is in fact much worse than initially reported on when looking at the difference between the pay of all men and women.
