The (Feminist) Business Bloggers’ Lament

Gender composition has drastically changed in the last few decades. “In the 1940s women made up only about 20% of the workforce.  However, by 2004 more than 46% of all workers were women.” According to the blog businesswomen tend to feel intimidated when talking about fairness of equality between men and women. They feel that they cannot perform to their best ability and it has become a concern in the working environment. In diverse levels of analysis, the social psychological level plays a huge role in this matter. I believe that organizations should put a major emphasis in making all their employers feel comfortable with their co-workers. It is important to persist on gender equality so women can perform to their best capacity.

Am organization is greatly defined by the decisions it makes. There can be major difficulties by executing poor when co-workers do not feel comfortable in the environment. By ratifying the values, beliefs, and expectations that each person has in the organization, women could feel more empowered to perform better. It should not be gender that defines the effectiveness of a worker. Acting ethically, shaping the decisions the organization makes from differentiating right from wrong, should become the heart and soul of the company’s culture, and it can signify an immense difference between the success and failure of an organization.

  1. I understand you believe things need to be done in the workplace to make lives for female workers easier, but what should the corporation do to accomplish this woman’s empowerment you talk about?
