Project #53603 - Gender Issues in the workplace

 No more than 2-3 paragraph per Activity. APA format and in text citation with refernce page. 

Learning Activity #1 

Many of you may not remember a time when women were raised to have children and men were raised to be the breadwinner. If men went to college, their field of focus was usually math or science whereas women were expected to move into the field of education or nursing.  Many women were expected to get a secretarial job, work until they found a husband so they could have children and be a house wife.  Fast forward to the present, the workplace is different as are the expectations for men and women.

Learning Activity #2


Hsu (2011) discussed that in 1980 more women enrolled in college than men.  Even today more women than men pursue a higher education, receive a greater number of honor degrees and earn a Bachelor’s degree (Hsu, 2011).  Women are showing they are equal to men in the academic world but once they enter the job market, women earn 80 cents on the dollar of what a man earns despite having equal qualifications if not better (Hsu, 2011).  This difference is attributed to gender differences.  For example, Hsu (2011) claims that the lack of wage parity is not due to differences in qualifications that create the gap in earnings but is caused by gender because the workplace is inherently biased against women through stereotyping and expectations of women’s roles and their actions.
