Hollihan and Baaske contend that women are likely to be more sensitive to issues of gender discrimination than men. Do you agree or disagree? Present your view and support it with three distinct reasons.
No, gender bias cuts both ways and men are likely to be as sensitive as women are towards gender inequality. Traditionally, stereotypes are difficult to live up to and men, for instance, are expected to demonstrate emotional and physical strength and provide for their families among others (“Gender inequality affects men too,” n.d). Living up to society standards can lead to feelings of inadequacy. The pressure from the society to remain resilient and not display their emotions prevents them from seeking help. Men face gender bias when taking a career path traditionally designed for women by the constructs of the society. For instance, men are less likely to take a career in childhood or maternal child and health workforce, due to stereotypes that view these as careers designed for women. Additionally, men who would want to take equal or more responsibility in caring for their children are often restricted by workplace practices. The labor environment has always prevented and discouraged men from going on extended parental leave or working flexibly and taking care of their families. Overall, men are as much sensitive to gender discrimination, especially due to the traditional stereotypes and ideals.
