This article seeks to advance the view that at the workplace, women are the most disadvantaged employees. The authors also explore the various reasons as to why women are still disadvantaged in this day and age. They conclude that there is sufficient evidence linking discrimination and prejudice to sex role stereotypes. In that regard therefore, it is the said stereotypes that must be addressed to rein in sexism in the workplace.
In basic terms, women bear the brunt of sexism at the workplace. As the authors of this particular article point out, past research has indicated that in most places of work, gender differences do indeed exist in pay and promotion rates, career choices, etc. In the words of the authors, "all of these differences negatively impact women in the workplace." For instance, although women make up 47% of the workforce in the U.S., only 16% of women serve on the boards of Fortune 500 companies. The perpetrators of sexism in this case could be hiring committees, disciplinary committees, etc.
