The book alternates between telling the story of a leader who is striving to find meaning in his work, and regular interludes, which include summaries, reflective questions, and information regarding various spiritual philosophies.

This article discusses what gender stereotypes are, the groups of people they affect the most, and the laws that are to prevent gender stereotyping.

These gender stereotypes do more harm than good, as often when people do not fit a stereotype, they become confused as to where they truly belong in society. As stated by Robert Kimbrough in his article “Macbeth: The Prisoner of Gender”, people who follow their respective stereotype completely “are prevented from attaining and maintaining a full range of human character traits because of cultural attempts to render some exclusively feminine and some exclusively masculine” (176).

Stereotypes are becoming more common in human communication every day without us even realizing it. Stereotypes are often confused with misconceptions because of their similarity. Misconceptions are based off of no evidence and is completely made up, but a stereotype is at least based off of some truth, even if the majority of that group does not identify with the statement made about them. Women are often stereotyped for their emotional tendencies and are
Stereotypes often have negative impacts on a lot of people. A stereotype is a fixed image of a particular person or thing that is not necessarily true.

Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters, the sheriff's wife's, discover evidence that proved that Mrs. Wright’s motivation for killing her husband. However, the men are unable to discover any evidence
Mars & Venus in the Workplace is based on the premise that men and women are from different planets where not only do they speak different languages, but differ fundamentally in the way they use language to communicate. These differences routinely lead to miscommunication between the sexes, with each sex misinterpreting the other’s perspective, leading to mistrust, exclusion, and the perception of no appreciation and disrespect. In today’s corporate culture, the companies that make the most money when measured by financial success will have the highest balance of men and women in the highest levels of the organization. Together both sexes are creating a corporate culture where men and women are respected equally, complimenting each other, bringing opposites together in cooperative collaboration for the success of the company.

The growing awareness about the natural human urge to stereotype people in recent years allows for a clear view of the natural negative side effects of these prejudices.

Friedman, discuss the concept of “stereotype threat” as it relates to classic gender stereotypes and roles. They define stereotype threat as the result of “an intimidating situation
Chinese women suffer from the unfair notion for thousands of years. The basic requirements of being virtuous women are “Three Obediences and Four Virtues (三从四德)”. The “Three Obediences” were “obey your father before marriage (未嫁从父); obey your husband when married (既嫁从夫); and obey your sons in widowhood (夫死从子)”. And the “Four Virtues” were “Female virtues (妇德)”, “Female words (妇言)”, “Female appearances (妇容)” and “Female work (妇功)”. (Sun, 2015). The three obediences and four virtues occurred in ancient China society. It is a set of basic moral principle for women in Confucian. These instructions first appeared in the “Book of Etiquette and Ceremonial” and in the “Rites of Zhou.” (Kelleher, 2005) to describe traditional ceremonial and behavior.

Asian stereotypes are a problem that illuminates false images of asians and imposes substantial burdens upon them.
Over the years, women have fought their way through the various barriers thrown at them by society, they are now more educated, matching male participation rates in the labour force and they are seen to create more opportunities for themselves in the workplace. Despite these achievements, gender stratification still exists in organizations and corporations in the 21st century; this paper seeks to analyze the numerous reasons why women remain underrepresented in leadership positions in the workplace and how this causes a trickle-down effect for other females in non-managerial positions.
