Example cases of unequal women treatment in the workplace?
Hey I'm supposed to share with the class on unequal treatment of women in the workplace with the class today, I've been able to come up on how they are mistreated but thinking some examples or cases might spice it up. Anyone have good example/cases? Can involve anything from just given lower pay to actually being fired/ hard discriminated Hey, no I do not believe discrimination is limited to women, however that is the topic i'm supposed to discuss. I have examples of workers in India and China (not so much lately but very recently approx 5 years ago) being given unfair treatment, due to education, geography, economic and religious factors. Belief that women are nurturers Obviously (as a Canadian citizen and Ontario resident) discrimination towards women is a rare concept for me, however it is not to those in less developed and developing countries. Read cases in Siberia as well but couldn't find a reliable source, thus reluctant to use. Was hoping someone may have a reliable source which I can cite, and not personal experiences. No matter how funny they are ^^

Women get paid less, promoted less, never get the top jobs (the glass ceiling effect), get harassed constantly.. Look at the past 60 years.
