What is Sexual Discrimination?
One of the most prevalent places sexual discrimination can be seen is in the workplace. This is when someone is treated unfairly, or not offered the same opportunities as someone else at work based on their sex. It is illegal to treat someone in this way as outlined in the Civil Rights Act and the Equal Pay Act. For many, the experience of being discriminated against can cause someone to be left in disbelief. Sexual discrimination can happen in a variety of ways:
- The Glass Ceiling: the idea that women are incapable of holding high power positions
- Gearing interview questions towards whether a woman will be having children
- Promotions based on gender and/or Unequal Pay
- Being Fired based on gender
