Discrimination based upon one’s gender is an issue in workplaces throughout the nation. While it can impact men as well as women, most often women are in the receiving end of it. Women who face gender discrimination know it can take many forms including:
- The failure to be hired.
- The failure to be promoted.
- Unfair firings.
- Being paid less than men doing the same job.
While there are likely many reasons individuals might give for firing, not hiring, not promoting or not paying a woman the same as a man, the way they are perceived could play a role. A study that explored this matter was recently conducted.
