Job Inequality Between Genders in Computer Science and Teaching
Qingdao No.58 High School, Qingdao, China, 266071
With the development of society, people nowadays can find jobs with a tremendous variety of choices. However, it’s surprising to know in certain occupations, there are still differences in hiring based on gender. This article, focusing on women, shows how the public perceives the stereotypes in the industry of computer science, drawing parallels to teaching, and illustrates the reason behind this condition and how industry insiders perceive this dangerous situation. Also, discussing the right way of hiring and why job inequality occurs will be included in this essay. This paper accounts for qualitative questionnaires, handed out online on social media like WeChat, and Weibo, without specific limitations. The results perfectly reflect the bias in public in the industry of computer science and teaching and people’s stereotypes toward them, specifically gender stereotypes. However, hiring should be based on ability rather than gender.
