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. Despite the huge advances women have made , workplaces don 't recognize that women are equally qualified for the same jobs as men. The government and the society should work on providing fairness to the employees from both gender at workplaces. Gender inequality at workplaces is as any other problem in which there 're people for it and others against , the people with gender inequality sees that women are not able to do work as men , they don 't recognize how women may be qualified as men or even more. The other ones , who are with gender equality , sees the problem from another side.
Gender inequality is the unequal treatment which is seen within the individuals of the society based on the gender (Wikipedia). Now-a-days the women participation in the economic sector is increasing. However, it should be understood that just giving employment does not provide equity and empowerment to the women. Here, the problem lies with the working conditions of women as well as the wage gap which exists in between the genders. This wage gap is one of the greatest problems of the 21st century.
Introduction Work places undergo many problems like incidental events of life. It may seem as if there is never enough time to solve each issue but when flexibility is the main component in organization, problematic solutions can be achieved more effectively (Mumford et al, 2000). Work places face multiple problems such as Gender Diversity which refers to the lack of good balance between men and women at work place (Jackson, 1992). Another problem may be the Cultural and ethnic identities which are primarily based on daily practices, rituals and beliefs depending on religion, creed and race. One of the problems that could never be neglected at any work place is harassment (Einarsen et al, 2011).
The reason why the organization culture is perceived in this manner is due to having specific “characteristics as aggressiveness, competitiveness, success orientation and independence that refer to men,” while women are the complete opposite and not making them suitable to do well in the business life (Kocabacak and Kalkan 670). Additionally, this study was able to show that a correlation exists between gender and mobbing which females are more likely to be affected than men, leading to gender discrimination in the workplace. Thus, to comeback some of these issues, it is recommended to address gender inequality in the workplace, so that companies are able to build a strong alliance with the females in their unit division, making it so that everyone contributes to organizational success. Not only that, but it is highly recommended that gender equality starts at the highest level in a corporation to set an example for all the lower divisions (executives, managers, and employees). One last step that should be taken into account is giving females an opportunity to do the jobs that men are currently doing in the workforce, seeing they may do a better job than their counterpart in some areas, which could enhance the company
Many women disappear from the paid workforce after they have children being deemed as the primary care givers. Others become stuck in positions below senior management or generally ignored, leaving them frustrated and unfulfilled.

Consequently, the positions of power constantly remind us that it’s a man’s world after all. The root cause for this includes certain deeply embedded structural beliefs and barriers as also stereotypes and biases.

Through my personal experience at workplace, I noticed the common reasons which contribute to the rise of conflicts are lacking of trust and respect for others, attitude of reporting manager and competition of comparison related to the standard of living, the social life of employees, benefits earned as well as work load. Noticed that the frustrations are mainly from the expats when they are not given that much of importance or proving them that they are dispensable to a stage where the organization would not cease to operate or function without them. As a result, this created a conflictual climate the workplace.

The ambiguous skill definition and gender stereotypes pose a great threat to employees during use. Soft skills in the practice of labor market are notoriously difficult to measure and our participant evaluation are at this point still being subjectively assessed. Ethical issues inevitably occur as well. There are some worrying about the gender inequality for female workers as they are more represented in low-skilled service sectors.
