Alexus Dunn October 2, 2017 Composition 1 Sexism in the Workplace Sexism is one of the most common problems in the workforce between women and men. Doesn’t matter the workplace women are always treated differently. Women are stereotyped in all kind of ways and are judged for how they look, how they talk, and how they present their selves. Some examples of sexism in the workplace are discrimination against pregnant women, pay difference, the difference in reasons for taking off from work, and the difference in labor of work. When it comes to discrimination of pregnant women most jobs prefer males. Men don’t have to take a leave of absents when their children are born. But, women must take time for their bodies to heal and take care of their child for a little while after the hospital visit. Most jobs don’t like when you must leave for a short period of time and can be replaced. When you can be replaced by someone that they feel is better fit to do your job they will replace you.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
