Transcript of Gender Inequality in the Workplace

Gender Inequality in the Workplace: America's Glass Ceiling
Gender inequality in the workplace, both through wage disparity and a lack of higher-level representation, forces women to choose between a profession and a family, creating a double standard in our society.
Wage Disparity
18 percent wage gap
Women make 81 cents to every dollar a man makes
Women with children make 79% of the salary men with children make
Why does this disparity occur?
Employment Disparity
Women have reached and surpassed educational equality
Women obtain an unusually low amount of higher-level professional jobs
Why do women not represent a higher number of professionals?
Changing viewpoints on gender roles
Slow progress due to lack of recognition
Social expectation of the "stay-at-home mom"
What are its negative effects?
What are solutions?
Greater employer accommodation
