You Be the Judge: Are There Still Double Standards?

You Be the Judge: Are There Still Double Standards?

Pantene recently released an ad that urges women to fight workplace stereotypes. HR, HR Management, Strategies

Some of the stereotype examples displayed in the ad include:

  • A well dressed man is considered smooth; a well dressed woman is considered a show-off
  • A man giving a speech is considered persuasive; a woman giving a speech is considered pushy
  • A man working late is considered dedicated; a woman (mother) working late is considered selfish

Pantene created the ad in response and support of the message in Sheryl Sandberg's book, "Lean In." See our book review here. 

According to the EEOC, there have been over 32,000 gender related discrimination claims in 2012. That is up from 28,500 claims the previous year. Granted over 20,000 of those claims were found to have no reasonable cause.

However, the question still remains about the perception in the workplace. Are there still double standards?
