During the 1950s and 1960s increasing numbers of married women entered the labor force but in 1963 the average working woman earned less than half of what a man made In 1964 an amendment was passed to outlaw discrimination on the basis of gender as well as race Sexual discrimination is prevalent in the United States today and is evident in the business world Most businesses have always been dominated by men and have simply been tradition in America that men run Corporate America and not women Not until the late twentieth century have women even been a part of big business Equality between sexes and race has been stressed and made law in the late nineteenth century but even though laws have been made to protect woman from this discrimination it still occurs frequently Equality is being treated the same way and having the same opportunities no matter who one is Big business has not given women the chance to be equal with men One does not normally see a woman as the owner or even the manager of a major corporation these jobs consistently go to men Tradition hurts womens employment opportunities because most of the people that are in the position to hire are men who were hired by other men Men have an upper hand because they have been traditionally the ones that run and control business It is very difficult to break a tradition or trend like that When it comes to substantial positions a woman has a tough time competing with a man that has anywhere near her qualifications just for the plain fact that a man usually feels more comfortable hiring another man Men feel that woman are not capable of handling these positions and just hire a male over a female almost every time When it comes to equality some standards still need to be kept in mind A woman should not be hired to fill
