Wide-Ranging Effects of Gender Discrimination
Sometimes gender discrimination results in a so-called "glass ceiling" for women. Women find it difficult to rise above a certain level of influence, responsibility or compensation, despite their skill, experience and qualifications.
Often, this discrimination is not rooted in outright sexism. Instead, it can be the subtle, unconscious tendency that most people have to favore individuals who are similar to themselves.
Gender Discrimination Works in Both Directions!
In most cases, gender discrimination occurs when someone in power expresses a preference for members of his or her own gender. Historically, men have discriminated against women. While it is much less common, in some situations women discriminate against men.
In addition, men can discriminate against other men, and women can discriminate against other women. It does not matter who is discriminating against whom: if the discrimination is based upon gender it is illegal!
