Author(s):

Abstract:

Gender roles are behaviors that men and women exhibit in the private and public spheres. The public has mixed views about the changing role of women in the workplace and its impact on family life. Despite flooding the workplace since the 1970s and 1980s, women still face many institutional challenges to equality in the workplace. While women's participation in employees and their level of education is increasing, there are some major factors that are holding women more than men. These factors, among others, contribute to a large pay gap and overall contribution gender inequality that has developed in the modern workplace. This problem needs attention because new research has shown that women in leadership roles come at a higher-level Profitability, new and effective leadership style, and many other benefits to a company. Today women make up about half of the American labor force, and in 2012 almost as many working-aged women (68%) as men (79%) were in the labor force.
