Our posts last week focused on the problem of pregnancy discrimination in employment. While women often face career obstacles and discrimination because of pregnancy, it is important to remember that women also tend to face these problems simply by being women in the workplace.
In short, gender discrimination is still very much a problem. And it is difficult to solve, in part, because assumptions about gender and gender roles are often deep-rooted and subconscious. The results of a recent study seem to confirm this.
