Women are simply “demanding and pushy”

As opposed to the man’s “assertive” in the workplace, women are still being looked at as “demanding and pushy”.

An experiment was done to see how employers would react differently to a man and woman that have the same resume, same interview answers, and are going for the same job.

The results: The volunteers were 30 percent less likely to hire the woman than the man. The reason: She’s too demanding and pushy, even though she said exactly the same things as her male counterpart.

Hmm…interesting. Clear gender bias and sexism. The article goes on to say that the employers bias comes from nature or nuture, or little bit of both. It is still true that perceptions towards women in the workplace aren’t good. She’s pushy, demanding, a bitch, and she must be a slut too if she’s worked her way up the corporate ladder!

So, why is this sexism still occurring? Women can be and are just as good workers, or better, than their male counterparts. Why do employers still get away with this gender bias? Oh how the world is cruel and unfair.
