Abstract

Literature reviews will establish the general culture surrounding women’s experiences in the workforce. Looking to the history of women as a part of the workforce, this paper will attempt to explain how popular opinion in the United States has progressed over time. Then, we will examine the current status of working women in the United States. Research includes insight to the wage gap, negotiations, the hiring process, career disruptions, discrimination, and harassment while examining how gender affects these aspects of working life. At the end, I will make recommendations based on my findings that I believe would benefit working women and help to achieve gender equality in pay and in the workplace as a whole.
