We live in a new generation where everything is possible. Girls can play football, boys can do ballet. Some of the best chefs in the world are male, women working in construction are being played more. But even though the gender barrier is thin there is still the issue of female discrimination on the workplace.
Let`s face it we live in a men`s world. The percentage of males taking senior and higher paid positions is much bigger that the percentage of females. Even in the rare occasions when a lady walks through the conference room door and sits on the boss’ chair, the amount or respect she would get is lower that if it was a man.
Deep down in the human’s mind the woman’s place is in the kitchen, her job is to take care of the kids and make a sandwich. But is it so hard to understand that times are changing and females are capable of replacing the pink housewife slippers with corporate high heels and walk straight into the business world.
Gender discrimination at the work place is an often-faced issue – the same idea is perceived differently depending on the sex of the person presenting it. Do you think that men are purposely discriminating females so they won’t face the situation when SHE will tell them what to do? Or maybe there is a part of the male brain used to take orders and directions from low deep voice only? Or maybe the females also have fault for being discriminated? How man times you have witnessed a lady dealing with a problem emotional instead of professional?
And in the end – does it really matter what gender is the person sitting in that black leather chair at the end of the table,
as long as the job is well done.
