According to the human development report , 1997 , It stated that "No society treats its women as well as its men". The issues of equality in the workplace and affirmative action have been hovering over the working world 's head for many years now. This problem is considered one of the most problems affecting the society , due to its penetration in many fields. Equality should be achievied , not only because it 's fair and it 's the right thing , but also because equality is vitally important to the productions of nations. So It cannot be denied that gender inequality in workplaces is the most negatively effective on women , because at workplaces , employees should be treated on how they work not either they 're men or women.
Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world. However, women have fought for their rights to be equally compared to men and to be civil. They both have the same civil rights; however, men are paid better and are treated better in the workplace. In some homes women are treated without dignity. Women can have the world at their feet.
In today’s society we are faced with a controversial decision on whether or not we have a gender wage gap or a gender earnings gap. Many companies are faced with a gender wage gap while just as many see a genders earning gap or even nothing at all. Within Whitley County, where I live, both of these situation are presented. When looking at all the factors going into pay they include skill, effort, responsibility, working conditions, and establishment (Facts About Equal Pay). While society is split on whether a gender pay gap does exist or not, society still strives for changes to occur, less discrimination in the workplace, and how gender sometimes takes a toll in the workplace.
(AlterNet, 2015.) Due to the constraints the FMLA puts on so many working women, the economic equality between them and men is worsened. The specifics found in the law quietly but severely reduce the number of females qualified for unpaid leave and also leaves women working low-wage jobs at risk of being fired for merely taking one or two weeks off. Looking at women who have received a college education, it only seems to get worse for them as they head onto their career paths. A Bloomberg article explains that there is barely a wage gap for young women and men as recent college graduates, but as they get older, the gap widens- the first apparent gap is when they decide to have children (Suddath, 2015.)
However, according to radical feminism, the progress made is too little and has created more problems for women. Within marriage, women do double work as paid workers and unpaid domestic workers.

Further, these respondents indicated that they were inadequately prepared as a result of their formal and informal training to deal with gender discrimination in the workplace. Gender discrimination in the labor market can result in lower earnings for women (Besen & Kimmel, 2006; Blau & Kahn, 2004). A recent survey of the Institute of Management Accountants reported that female members earned less than male members at
Inequality between the sexes has been a moot point even since the evolution of the modern era. According to UN Women, the definition of gender equality is “the equal rights, responsibilities, and opportunities of women and men, girls and boys”. Gender inequality is a global issue: women lack adequate access to education, are underrepresented in political arenas and different arenas; face discrimination in the workplace and wages. Exponents of gender equality argue that both the sexes should be treated equally. It is not only a fundamental human right but an imperative foundation for a peaceful and prosperous society.
Women would have the same chance that men to achieve well paid jobs, but at the same time, like now is happening, there will be cases of micromachismo. Micromachismo is an act that goes unnoticed but, it reflects at the same time male chauvinist attitudes and inequalities of women compared to men, for example when we go to public places, and we go to their bathrooms, the most common thing is to see how the baby’s section is incorporated to women section, this stills happening because people still thinking that men are better than women instead of treating them equally, and that there are certain things that a women can not do such as drinking an alcoholic drink or contributing at work, because they do think that women does not have an opinion with the same authority as
