Gender discrimination

During the olden days, people live together without noticing any difference among them. They accept each other with love and they shower kindness on each other they trust one another and help one another during their difficult times.

During this time things were going on well brothers were living and eating from one plate with an open heart and with the thought nothing will happen until 2000 things begin to change little by little they no longer see each other as a family not do they eat together fear began and hatred is been developed brother no longer call brother brother nor consider each other

Sisters became enemies they no longer share secrets they are scared to do so

Churches became a making money centre

Prostitution came in and fornication is now the lyrics of every human, people now sin with pride everything changed but yet one thing didn’t change women are still treated like before they are been denied many things but still they consider the world to be an amazing place where things have changed for good but ladies can be allowed to do many things instead they are still living the life of 80s where the thought what women are good at is doing the house work and taking care of the children and satisfying men on bed

In this recent time, ladies are judged quickly without knowing what the problem is

Politics

Women’s political representation globally has doubled in the last 25 years. But, this only amounts to around 1 in 4 parliamentary seats held by women today. 

Women continue to be significantly underrepresented in the highest political positions. In October 2019, there were only 10 women Head of State and 13 women Head of Government across 22 countries, compared with four Head of State and eight Prime Ministers across 12 countries in 1995.

LEADERSHIP

Despite Progress, the Gender Gap Is Still Wide at Senior Levels19

Extremely limited women are CEOs of the earth’s largest corporations. As of the August 2020 Fortune Global list, only 13 women (2.6%) were CEOS of Fortune Global 500 companies and all of them were white

A 2020 analysis by Mercer of over 1,100 organizations across the world found a leaky pipeline for women in leadership, with the representation of women decreasing as the levels progress:21

  • Executives: 23%
  • Senior managers: 29%
  • Managers: 37%
  • Professionals: 42%
  • Support staff: 47%

Percentage of Women in the Workforce

The inequities experienced by women in the workplace are shocking, as seen by the below statistics:

  • Women represented  47% of the total labour force in 2019.
  • 57.4% of women participated in the labour force in 2019, compared to 69.2% of men.
  • Women are more likely to lose their jobs due to automation by some estimates.
  • 58% of workers in the most at-risk jobs are women.
  • For every 100 men promoted to the manager, only 85 women were promoted.
  • At the beginning of 2020, women held 38% of manager-level positions, while men held 62%.
  • The 2020 Fortune 500 list revealed a record high number of 37 women CEOs, compared to the 463 CEO positions held by men.

Women of Color in the Workplace

In 2019 people of color made up of nearly 40% of the population. However, people of colour continue to face bias in the workplace.

And women of color especially experience extreme inequity in the workforce.

  • For every 100 men promoted to manager, only 58 Black women and 71 Latinas were promoted.
  • 1 in 3 Latinas work in a high risk field.
  • Men held 77.5% of fortune 500 boards seats in 2018, while women held 22.5%. But only 4.6% of these seats were held by women of color.
  • Men held 74% of S&P 500 board seats while women held 26%. In the top 200 companies in the S&P 500 board seats, only 6% were held by womencolourolor — 4% by Black women, 1% by Latinas, and 1% by Asian women.

Women of colour are more likely to stagnate in their careers than white women. They are also more represented in individual contributor roles and the least represented higher up on the corporate ladder.

To stop this change begins with you and say no to gender discrimination
