Within the United States, millions of women are working, and many are the sole source of income for their families. While women overall earn less than men, the size of the gender wage gap varies based on race, education, age, and marital status. Federal laws are enforced by the U.S. Employment Equal Opportunity Commission to ensure that women are protected from gender-based discrimination in the workplace. This discrimination can come in the form of sexual harassment, awarding promotions based on gender, giving a different job title to a woman and preventing women from participating in training opportunities. These things cannot be happening anymore. Who gives anyone the right to invade someone's personal space, or inappropriately touch someone, especially in a professional workplace? If a man and a woman do the same job and work the same hours, why does the man make more money? If a man and a woman get the same professional degree, why does the man make more money? Women get less access to the people and opportunities that advance careers and are disadvantaged in many of their daily interactions. These inequities take a toll on women: They are less likely to think they have equal opportunities for growth and development—and more likely to think their gender will play a role in missing out on a raise, promotion, or chance to get ahead. In workplaces every single day; women are abused, sexually harassed, and raped by their bosses and coworkers, being seen as an object instead of an intelligent, capable human being. It is astounding that gender discrimination is still present in our world and our everyday lives at home, at school, and at work. We created this blog specifically to bring attention to the many problems women face in the American workplace. Let's rise above and show the world that we are all created equal and are to be treated equally.
