Gender discrimination at workplaces is fast becoming an area of legal concern in the country. California laws and federal laws direct that all employees irrespective of their gender should be given equal opportunities and rights in the organization. Yet many a times, women are discriminated against her colleagues only because of her gender.
Gender discrimination at workplace is present in many forms. A woman is unable to cross the “glass ceiling,” preventing her from taking up positions of greater managerial responsibility in the company. They may also be hit by the “glass walls” when they want to change their line of career and apply for a role in occupations which have been traditionally filled by men only. But lets not forget, that like sexual harassment or assault, men as well as women, both can be victims of gender discrimination.
