Discrimination Against Women In The Modern Labor Market: Specifics And Contradictions


The aim of the present research is to analyze discrimination against women in the labour market and to identify its features which affect economically active female population. The study was directed at the economically active female representatives living in the city of Ryazan. The subject of the study was to identify specifics of discrimination against women in the labour market. The main volume of information on the problem mentioned was obtained using a questionnaire survey. This method formed the basis for the survey of economically active female representatives living in the city of Ryazan using the Google Form application. The main empirical indicators were the level of awareness and occurrence of discrimination against women in the labour market, the opinion of the economically active female population concerning their professional carrier as well as their attitude towards the measures of state support. The authors arrived at the conclusion that the reasons of gender discrimination in the labour market lie in the imperfection of the legal system, the existed stereotypes and prejudices and in a number of economic causes. At the same time, the measures of the State directed at the protection of women’s rights and their support in case of discrimination against them in the labour market appear not to be effective enough.
