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.

Wandana Sonalkar (2015) In her article on “Dalit Women in India: At the Crossroads of Gender, Caste, and Class”, She argues about the caste system is based on the division of people into social groups (or castes) in which the civil, cultural, and economic rights of each individual caste are predetermined or ascribed by birth and made hereditary; the assignment of rights among castes is unequal and hierarchical, and this system provides a regulatory mechanism to enforce social and economic organization through the instruments of social ostracism .She also talk about the problems of Dalit women. She also analyzed the multi dimensionalities of the challenges faced by Dalit women. Her analysis shows that the emerging multiple voices demanding group-specific gender policies are closely linked to the uneven gains of economic progress recorded by various groups such as the Dalit women’s group. Therefore her analysis becomes more important in order to understand the affect of multiple marginalized group identities (in Dalit women’s case, gender-caste-class) on their level of human development and human dignity. Dalit women’s access to citizenship rights, normally considered as accruing to every Indian citizen, has thus been examined more closely in regard to both their economic and social conditions as well as the various ways in which they are subjugated in public and private spheres.

To better understand the relevance of Guillaumin’s (1999) claims, this paper will compare her views against one of the most pressing problems in the education system of the USA; racism in schools. The notion of racism being experienced in schools lends support to her claim that Racism is a “de facto” (Guillaumin, 1999, p.45) notion ingrained within human brains.

Gender based discrimination is a very critical issue in social discrimination. Men and women always comprise the two halves of the population in every society. However, the rights and opportunities afforded to women have never been on the same level with the rights and opportunities accorded to men of the said societies.
Hence sexism means and denotes any prejudice against an individual or a community based on their personage's or else the cluster's sex (Gruman, Schneider & Coutts, 2005, p.340). In this paper, therefore, the term sexism and gender discrimination will be used interchangeably and principally, being associated with stereotypical beliefs and discriminations against the female gender. Stereotypes are thus beliefs about the attributes, characteristics, and behaviours of members of certain sets of persons or individuals and are typically thus socio-culturally constructed (Schneider, Gruman & Coutts, 2005). Although Stereotypic ideas as well as beliefs as regards to women, they have overtime by some means changed in addition to having been improved, they still remain rampant and evident in many countries as well as in the otherwise referred to as the modernized
