Philadelphia Discrimination Lawyers: Workplace Gender Inequality

February 8th, 2017

Despite the significant strides women have made in the workplace, gender inequality persists. Although statistics show women are reaching greater educational achievements than men, they are not experiencing greater success in the workplace. This fact is particularly evident in gender wage gaps. For every dollar men earn, women make 79 cents, according to the United States Census Bureau.

Researchers from the sociology department at Harvard University theorize that the greatest roadblock to gender equality is the impact of caregiving responsibilities on the balance of work and family. The idea is that when women are responsible for almost all caregiving and household responsibilities, their ability to succeed in the workplace is greatly impeded. When jobs require women to be available all the time, gender equality becomes unrealistic. The current birth rate, or fertility rate, in the U.S. is 1.9, which is below the ideal fertility rate of 2.1. Studies have shown that countries with increased gender equality in the workplace have higher fertility rates. However, cultural norms in the U.S. and other countries with low birth rates make it very difficult for women to balance motherhood and a career.

Gender stereotypes that persist in the U.S. can lead to gender discrimination in the workplace. If you believe your employer has discriminated against you because of your gender, call the Philadelphia discrimination lawyers at The Gold Law Firm P.C. at 215-569-1999 or contact us online for a free case evaluation.
