Women has encountered sexism on a daily basis since history books could even record them. Countless times throughout time, women faced through struggles of unfair treatment, discrimination, and oppression due to the basis of their gender. From a piece written by Carol Tavris, it is mentioned that when men have problems of their own, society often blames it on his personality or the environment he is in. However, when women have problems, society blames it on her mental state or psyche. The explanations we make of females with men are so different because of how prominent sexism is in this society.
Whilst these scenarios are purely anecdotal, they are recent accounts from real women and, according to the article, will be “painfully familiar” for many female workers. This raises the important question of why, in free-thinking democratic societies such as the UK and the US, does sexual discrimination still
It would take an understanding of internalized prejudice and to see women as equal. In both situations women are delved punishments by misogyny and sexism for trying to stand out in a male dominated world, but both require different solutions.

Sexual Discrimination For as long a humanity has kept records, women seem to have been victims of sexual discrimination. In other words, women have been raped, abused, underappreciated, and generally mistreated in society based on the fact that they are women. The issue of gender discrimination is widespread around the World and millions of women suffer from sexual discrimination from any of its various form daily. Sexual segregation prevents women from passing citizenship to their children, to get a divorce, even when they are abused by their partner, and to get a proper education in some countries. Thus women suffer at the hands of a patriarchal society where they have virtually no rights.
There is a good number of things that can be listed showing the disadvantages to women in the workplace, some of those being, wage differences for same/similar positions, longer times for women to advance in the same field compared to men, women thought of in a lower status comparatively, and in general thought of as housewife, mother, and nurturer ("Gender inequalities in the workplace: the effects of organizational structures, processes, practices, and decision makers? sexism," n.d.). Women who enter the workforce, depending on the career field are expected to be able to preform to the standards set forth for men, and generally by men. Those who cannot preform to those standards are ostracized and even pushed out of certain careers. While it is no longer uncommon for a woman to do a job that was before a mans only position, there are still standards that are based for the men.

Gender-bias arises especially on occupations that men choose. Countries like United States, Italy, Ireland, Greece and United Kingdom are present with gender gaps (Pearson, p. 20). Gender-bias especially in the workplace cannot be stop and more women will suffer from the discrimination brought by prevailing issues of women working. Gender bias creates a feeling of being deprived and judged in a certain place that gives a huge effect to employees especially on female employees. And if this will continue, more women will have hard time to prove themselves in the workplace which might cause less productivity towards their work.
