Philadelphia Employment Lawyers: Working Women Face Numerous Forms of Sex Discrimination

June 9th, 2017

Philadelphia Employment Lawyers: Working Women Face Numerous Forms of Sex DiscriminationQuantifiable wage gaps between men and women clearly indicate workplace sex discrimination; however, unequal pay is not the only discrimination issue that working women face. Gender inequalities also become apparent in cases involving limitations for women in business and office sexual harassment.

In addition to having fewer business opportunities than men and not earning equal pay, working women are also more likely to be criticized for being too aggressive and feel more pressure to choose between career and family.

A study entitled “Elephant in the Valley” highlights a number of challenges pertaining to workplace discrimination against women. According to the study,

  • 59 percent of working women report that men have more opportunities at work than women do;
  • 66 percent of working women report being excluded from work-related social events that promote networking because of their gender;
  • 88 percent of working women say clients or colleagues have inappropriately directed questions to male peers that should have been addressed to them;
  • 75 percent of women say they were asked about their marital status and children during a job interview;
  • 40 percent of working women say they avoid discussing family at work for fear of damage to their careers;
  • 60 percent of women reported experienced unwanted sexual attention at work.
