sets up readers with information on how to form their own opinion on the discriminations occurring towards women, as well as is an accurate source for historical facts if I need them for my research. It also describes the Equal Pay Act, as well as the modifications that have been made to it since it passed. The article highlights how women should also have equal access to “nontraditional” jobs, or jobs that don’t feature many women in positions. Another important aspect of the article is that it discusses family-friendly labor laws, and how the current labor laws regarding women are not fair. Giving background is definitely an important aspect of research, and that is why this source is a useful one for my topic. The final source that I’m using is a website called “Workharrassment.net”. It was created in 2010 with the intention of educating others on what constitutes as workplace
Babinec harassment and what a person’s rights are, as well as provides a list of frequently asked questions, information about coping and recovering from sexual harassment, what a person’s legal options are, information on Title IX, and tips on what to do if someone is a victim of workplace sexual harassment. There are many statistics and references available on the site, which I found to be very helpful, in addition to a source list of where to learn more and get information. I thought this site was an extremely modern, innovative take on addressing sexual harassment in the workplace. It was informative, as well as proactive towards eliminating the negative stigma that surrounds reporting harassment. I wanted to feature this in my Review of Literature because it not only gave me helpful statistical/research information, but it provided me with the hopeful notion that things are being done to clean up the mess that occurs post-harassment/discrimination. If only it never happened in the first place.
