Question;Many of you may not remember a;time when women were raised to have children and men were raised to be the;breadwinner. If men went to college, their field of focus was usually math;or science whereas women were expected to move into the field of education or;nursing. Many women were expected to get a secretarial job, work until;they found a husband so they could have children and be a house;wife. Fast forward to the present, the workplace is different as are;the expectations for men and women.;View the videos and read the material;the week. Reflect and respond on how the workplace has changed from your;perspective.;*Remember, everyone will have different;experiences and perspectives depending on age, where you grew up or the type of;work done in the past. In responding, make sure to use the material from the;videos and readings to demonstrate your points. Cite and reference the sources;used.;activity 2;Hsu (2011) discussed that in 1980 more;women enrolled in college than men. Even today more women than men pursue;a higher education, receive a greater number of honor degrees and earn a;Bachelor?s degree (Hsu, 2011). Women are showing they are equal to men in;the academic world but once they enter the job market, women earn 80 cents on;the dollar of what a man earns despite having equal qualifications if not;better (Hsu, 2011). This difference is attributed to gender;differences. For example, Hsu (2011) claims that the lack of wage parity;is not due to differences in qualifications that create the gap in earnings but;is caused by gender because the workplace is inherently biased against women;through stereotyping and expectations of women?s roles and their actions.;Do you agree or disagree with this;statement? Why or why not?;What other inequalities, if any, exists;in the workplace for both men and women?;Make sure to use the course material;videos and material from your own research to demonstrate your points.;Using this week?s course material or;outside research, what are three major takeaways on inequality between men and;women that you found in your readings?
