Study: Being a woman is still different than being a man

25Apr08

A recent study on workplace gender issues concluded, to no one’s surprise, that there are discrepencies between the career experiences and goals of men and women in their twenties (a demographic the report insists on referring nauseatingly to as “Millenials”).

“We’ve come a long way from the sexual revolution, but Millennial women still face gender challenges,” says JWT’s “director of trendspotting” in a press release. “While the twentysomething women in our survey were more likely to be college educated than their male counterparts, men earned about 26 percent more and were more likely to be working full-time.”

The survey also concluded that women and men had significantly different ideas of the ideal work situation: women want flexible schedules and (incredibly) their opinions taken into account while men value taking risks and learning new skills. Also, dudes are still less likely to be cool with having to answer to a female boss: 53 percent of women are OK with a boss of either sex compared to 46 percent of men; and while only 23 percent of women “prefer a boss of the same sex” the same is true of 40 percent of men.
