As explained in the first paragraph it is all up to the choices made by each gender. There are many factors that go into doing the calculations for finding the wage gap between genders and among choices that are made regarding career there are also choices that are uncontrollable like being unemployed. In a study by the Journal of Labor Economics (2008) it was discovered that “women tend on average to be more positively selected into work than men. However, the difference between actual and potential wage gaps is small...where the gender employment gap is highest.” (P. 625). This piece of evidence is very important because when calculating for the wage gap unemployment is also taken into factor and there is a big gender employment gap with more women not in jobs.
Even though in some cases this may reflect personal choices, traditions, and stereotypes still carry much weight for example, this is evident in the choice of educational path and professional careers young women choose. According to renowned economist Francine Blau and Lawrence Khan “about half of the gender wage gap in the economy is due to job segregation.” (Blau, Khan, Furthermore, women experience greater difficulties than men when it comes to leveling the field of work and private life.

GENDER Refer to (Schein, 1989) stated that the both men and women not only depend on biological term but the social roles of the genders also determined by the contemporary society since these roles are determined primarily by culture. There is a very great diversity among women even though they do bring diversity to the leadership. According to Schein (1989) even though many research have proven the differences between female and males, but commonly believed that the variation between female and male are fewer. Besides that the differences between the sexes is lesser than the differences within each sex. In the late 1960s and early 1970s each research on sex role stereotypes shows that women were seen to be more cams
The truth regarding the gender pay gap is that it affects females from different backgrounds, ages, races and educational levels. This ongoing issue does not seem likely to go away on its own. Women, who are as equally trained and educated, with the same experience as men are not getting equal pay. In today’s society, stereotypes are generated concerning women’s capabilities and this result in discrimination. Gender discrimination in work circumstances takes on many different forms; ranging from different payments between men and women who perform the same duties equally as well as when the income of men and women and retirement savings are stacked up against their health care cost and life expectancies, women are much farther behind than men are.
Business Studies ORT Do gender issues affect the leadership styles of management of DLSHCC? Throughout history the greatest dividing question between man and women is the issue of gender equality. Periods where women were considered intellectually superior and the leaders of their people were followed by times where women were oppressed and denied certain rights. Sexism and gender discrimination is an issue that filters through from the highest echelons of society to the smallest of organizations. The question at hand is whether the newest generation of leaders will subscribe to the outdated way of thinking; man/women or whether they will subscribe to an evolved way of thinking; leader/follower.
Gender inequality concerns both women and men and has a strong impact on their daily lives. Traditionally gender equality rules have been considered to be mainly as a “women’s issue” – as women have been a driving force behind gender equality approaches and struggles. This view has contributed to the awareness that women are the only ones who will benefit from a more equally and advanced society. In reality, men also benefit from gender equality as they also face gender- specific matters, such as lower life probability, bad well-being, inferior education levels and rigid norms. “I have seen young men suffering from mental instability, unable to ask for help for fear it would make them look less ‘macho’” (Watson, E.
Anuka Pokharel Feminists - are they wrong to take feminism too far? Are they taking feminism too far at all? There is a discourse that has been recurrent in the past few decades which had rarely been discussed before. People talk about whether or not feminists who speak up against the discrimination against women are exaggerating the extent to which women are disadvantaged in today’s world. They argue so, I’ve noticed, because in today’s world, more and more women are getting greater opportunities compared to men.
As a result, Celica Benoit author of Women, Work and Social Rights states that gendered stereotypes have made it more difficult for women to be taken seriously within the workplace, adding that male colleagues are more respected in these companies for they are perceived to be more dedicated workers (Benoit, 72). Benoit’s findings indicate that the media’s influence constricts both men and women, as the sexes are forced to conform to gendered
Women not only in China but also all over the world have made huge progress in the workplace. On the other side, it should take a note that women cluster in occupations and industries pay lower salaries overall than men in China, which is based on a fact that women are less likely than men to reach higher-level positions. In ancient Chinese society, the traditional Confucianism regard women as lowly and weak belongings of man, even in modern China, such beliefs still affect Chinese society. For example, women naturally take on more responsibility for house care. This pattern means that men get a better shot at a pay rise or a promotion than their female colleagues and are less likely to be in jobs for which they are overqualified.
