Facts over workplaces
Male and females working in STEM:
14% of women 86% of men
Male and females working in health, education and welfare.
73% women 27% of men
Comparing the results, more men work in the scientific departments than women. However, more females work in health, education and welfare compared to men which proves the stereotypes.
Famous people in feminism
Colley 1998 = found still gender differences in option choices, she argues that this affects students perceptions of subjects and this can affect jobs in the future.
Spender 1983 = girls are praised for appearences, good behaviour and neat work / the qualities are viewed less highly than the creativity and indivituality of boys.
Sharpe = noted that girls priorities had changed over a 20 year span. They no longer saw marriage and children as a priority, rather it was a career which dominated their thoughts.
To evaluate women are seen as primary carers for children and so may have to work part-time or give up work after having children.
