The employment of women in America has substantially increased over the last century. Social pressure has led to an increase in legislation for employers to provide equal opportunities for women in the workplace. However, women face complex challenges that their male counterparts do not. Outside of obligatory legislation measures there are steps employers can take to create a culture that fosters an environment where employees can appreciate one another for their differences and use their experiences to benefit the organization. This paper is to examine the history of women’s increased employment in America, the challenges they have faced to acquire equitable treatment, and what companies can do to foster inclusion for women in their culture.
