The Issues of Sexual Discrimination in Relation to Sexual Harassment

This is a preview of the 6-page document
Read full text

Unlike men, women have to put their career at stake, as they have to choose between their family and career. In addition, women are given double responsibilities such as management of the home, bringing up of children and career building if they choose to carry on with their career development (Kelly and Dobbin, 1999). On the other hand, men are at an advantageous side as they can go easily with their career growth without any familial pressure and management. Women stay connected with their families even at their jobs because of their double sense of responsibility while men show a little concern to their families while being a job.

Women are also made to select between their career and family life, out of which, most of them choose family while men have no pressure of such kind (Cleland, 1971). They can go their own way without any pressure or obligation. Sexism still prevails in societies all over the world. In order to solve this problem, it is essential for the government to set up some laws to prohibit sex discrimination in all situations.

However, laws cannot transform the way an individual thinks and laws cannot make people take sex discrimination seriously. We need to expel sex discrimination from society. We need to motivate and enforce these laws to ensure equal treatment for both males and females. Many of the people in society are still unaware of the broad picture of sex discrimination. Luckily, there is a law to protect people from gender discrimination. There is a Federal law, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which protects people from being discriminated and usually takes effect to employers with fifteen or more workers.

Additionally, similar state anti-sex discrimination laws protect people who work in smaller companies. Sexual harassment is dealt leniently and the offenders of this crime are not punished, as they should be because they get mild punishments for their gruesome felony, which is evidently a sign of sexual discrimination.
