Discussion2The role of women and minorities in the twenty first century American workplace continues to develop. For many years’ women served their families such as doingthe laundry, preparing food, staying home to please the needs of man, etc. Time has beenchanging and economic opportunities has been progressing dramatically leaving behindthe life of a housewife.Regarding to courses.lumenlearning.com, Women are not a statistical minority, asin most societies — they are roughly equal in number to men — but they do qualify as aminority group because they tend to have less power and fewer privileges than men.Underlying this unequal treatment of women is sexism, which is discrimination based onsex — in the context of a patriarchal society, discrimination against women in particular.
