Women have remained an active work partner since from the dawn of human civilization as far as history could trace. The presence of women at any other place except home fostered the feel of 'gender bias' and led the creation of specific attitude towards women at workplace. Various studies have focused on gender bias and the potential economic contributions of women in different sectors of economy. The paper discusses the studies done so far on attitude towards women managers. During the 1940's and 1950's, the number of women in high-ranking business positions was small. Women were not admitted on an equal basis with men to the Harvard MBAprogram until 1963. In fact gender bias results from the 'male norm' perspective wherein the traditional research tended to focus itself on the male experience and point of view. The paper includes the observations and findings from the related studies and also states its future implications.

Abstract


Women have remained an active work partner since from the dawn of human civilization as far as history could trace. The presence of women at any other place except home fostered the feel of 'gender bias' and led the creation of specific attitude towards women at workplace. Various studies have focused on gender bias and the potential economic contributions of women in different sectors of economy. The paper discusses the studies done so far on attitude towards women managers. During the 1940's and 1950's, the number of women in high-ranking business positions was small. Women were not admitted on an equal basis with men to the Harvard MBAprogram until 1963. In fact gender bias results from the 'male norm' perspective wherein the traditional research tended to focus itself on the male experience and point of view. The paper includes the observations and findings from the related studies and also states its future implications.
