  • Women have reached equality in the workplace

    Most of the time people just argue on the fact that men are stronger than women and etc, but did you ever think how strong the ladies might be? Most of the women working are mothers, and by that you'd get that its not only the office work she has to handle.

  • Have women reached equality in the workplace

    Yes, women have reached equality in the workplace. Women make choices and these choices affect both their careers and salaries. Look at doctors/surgeons - so many more women training as medical students - great, so many of these women becoming outstanding doctors/surgeons - great, so many of these women, after only a few years, dropping to part time or even quitting - not so great.
    There's nothing stopping women working in the same way that men do ... apart from things like making choices, and having children. The only problem is that if you raise these points in your son's school project he'll probably get a low mark since it's against the standard myth that all men are oppressing all women. Ever since it became the rule rather than the exception for women to work outside of the home, the issue of discrimination in the workplace has been a serious dilemma. Women have consistently been paid less and promoted less often than men, and they have often been treated in a more demeaning and less professional manner than their male counter-parts.

  • Yes women have reached equality in the workplace

    I believe for the most part yes women have reached equality in the workplace. There isn't too many jobs left that a woman can't do or is perceived to be unable to do now. Some may still think it perhaps, but by and large that has gone away. Even in male dominated places such as MMA, women are gaining a foothold and some respect where they had to fight for it like crazy before. They once were an aftethought there on men's cards, and presently have a growing place of their own. So yes I think compared to where they used to be, women are more equal to men now in the workplace.

  • I think not

    For a long time women strived to have the same rights as men, one of the most recognizable events, strives toward complete equality was when the women got the right to vote. In many modern countries we think of ourselves proud to have reached complete and utter equality, but is that the truth.


    Men and women compete in many jobs and industries, but in some of them the women will never be able to outperform. Women are able to be as good if not better than men in many intellectually focused jobs, leading a business, working at a law firm, but in, some for example, construction worker, long distance transport and so one women can not be better because their physiology doesn't support it. Where men are recommended to lift a maximum of double their own weight, women are recommended to lift only their own. Other reasons are that men are predisposed for this by the hormones that their glands produce, testosterone, one of the main hormones that are responsible for increased muscle mass in men. This along with man usually tending more to their physical strength stopping them from ever outperforming men in any field that requires physical work.


    Also one of the other main factors is the rate of promotion. Research conducted by “The Business insider” shows that even though the will to get promoted between women and men are the same, 75% and 78% respectively, men are 15% more likely to get promoted. Also men are more likely to sore for the top position the same research showed that 72% of men want to be on top compared to only 60% of women said the same. One of the main deterrents for the females was stress.

  • No Women Do Not

    No, women have not reached equality in the workplace. There are still many work environments where men rule and continue to look at women as inferior and incapable. There are still work environments where women have been granted “token” positions where they are not taken seriously, but provide the illusion of fairness. There are still work environments with “locker room” mentalities. As long as the boardroom is predominantly male, there is still a very good chance that equality will never happen.

  • No, women haven't found equality

    While women have come CLOSER to equality in the workplace, they still have a long way to go and little indicates it's coming any time soon. The fact of the matter is some people still think this is Mad Men and they don't really belong there, with any of that still in place equality cannot exist.

  • I want them to, but they haven't

    I believe that there are many things preventing this from happening. AND there is no way that they have reached equality when they are being payed on average .60$ less than men simply because they are women. Not fair.

  • They still face discrimination, and do not get paid the same.

    Women today face discrimination, and are thought to be weaker than men and unable to handle the same things. Women today get paid less than men do for the exact same job, they get paid about 18-20% less than men do. Men are always offering to take care of a girl, saying that she needs someone to take care of her and defend her. Lastly, women are not allowed to be in the front line of the army, like men.

  • We Aren’t There Yet

    No, women have not reached equality in the workplace. There are still many work environments where men rule and continue to look at women as inferior and incapable. There are still work environments where women have been granted “token” positions where they are not taken seriously, but provide the illusion of fairness. There are still work environments with “locker room” mentalities. As long as the boardroom is predominantly male, there is still a very good chance that equality will never happen.

  • Although women have made great strides in the work place when it comes to being equal to men, I do not believe that we can say women have reached total equality.

    Women have made huge advancements in the work place even over the last 30 years. I believe that women do have great opportunities in the workplace that they previously did not have. There is not a job today that men are allowed to do that women cannot (with the exception of major league sports). However, I believe that women still seem to be paid less and have less opportunity of advancing in their jobs than men do.
