Description

Abstract

Throughout history, women have continually held a subservient role to their male counterparts. Women have always been regarded as the caregivers while men are free to focus on their own lives and personal successes in the working world. Women are socialized to be sweet, kind, and gentle, while men are socialized to be dominant and aggressive. Only recently in our history have these roles been questioned. Although, through the efforts of the women’s movement, women have become more prevalent in the professional sphere, it is much more difficult for women to be successful. Women are forced to find success by adopting the values of their male counterparts, and, in doing so, lose aspects of their own femininity. The purpose of this paper is to question this fact and whether it will be possible for further change to allow women to succeed in business without losing their womanhood.
