How to innovate to reduce discrimination against women
Is there really a discrimination again women?
The film shows what kind of images are showed by some commercial medias. The film showed American medias but in all industrialize countries, we can found these movies that gives this women’s vision.
Beyond medias, is there really some discriminations against women, and especially in industrialised countries ? Simple fact allows us to see the evidence; in Europe, in Russia and Australia, Women are less paid from 17% in comparison with Men, in United States 19%, in UK 21%, in Japan 33% and in Korea 38%. There is no country without any discrimination against women but Scandinavian and New Zealand countries have low discriminations.
But there are other discriminations that have higher consequence.
What are the ratio of Women who have Top Board responsibility?
The best, in Norway, 39% of Board seats are attributed to Women. In USA, 15,7%, in France, 12,7%, in UK, 12,5% and in Germany 11,2%. In the BRICST countries, Brazil, 5,1%, Russia 5,9%, India 5,3%, China 8,5%, South Africa 15,8% and Turkey 10,8%.
Women managers are 20% less paid that men in France; average salary discrimination is around 17% for all categories of Women jobs. Higher the level in the hierarchy is, higher the inequality is.
Anyway, progress is there but the equality will be long to obtain in the current trend…
In 1980, 25% of managers were female; in 2010, 38%.
25% of worldwide countries have legal restrictions on women’s right to work. There is some reductions of restrictions, decade after decade.
Around the world, almost 20% of national parliamentary seats are now occupied by women, up from 17.2% five years ago.
It will take more than 50 years in the current trend to reduce completely the discrimination against women. Can we accelerate the trend? It is up to all of us, women and men to be informed and to make some concrete actions to reduce them.
