Sex discrimination or gender discrimination may have different definition in different countries. However, there is a common belief. It is that when someone is treated unfairly due to the sex or gender of a person, the ones treating them in an unfair way can be prosecuted for sex discrimination.

This is especially true in the workplace. If a person does not get promoted or loses a job simply because they are a man or a woman, then this is grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit and/or a sexual discrimination lawsuit.

This is actually a kind of prejudice that existed in the world and has for a long period of time. In the past, people would think that men are superior while women are inferior.

It was because the labor force was the most important source for the development of the society. People would farm, fish or mine in order to earn a living. And all these activities would require strong laborers who could work using their muscular bodies.

Physiologically, (in general and depending upon the task) women are not as strong as men due to the nature of the sex, muscular development and the development of various hormones in the body. Therefore, women could not get a place in those activities and they would inevitably be treated in a discriminated way.

However, the world nowadays does not focus solely on those physically demanding activities. Less physically demanding and more cerebral activities are the norm and dominating the economies of the world.

The improvement in living conditions enables women to study in schools and equip themselves with knowledge. Therefore, woman has made great strides over the past many decades in gaining work and they realize that they should not be always treated as useless to the society.

As a result, women started fighting for fair judgment decades ago. They showed their intelligence and they showed that women are not worse than men in many aspects (and perhaps better in others). This made men think deeply about the role of men and women in the world.

After years of hard work, women have finally gotten most what they have fought for. One exception is that women only earn a percent, on a nationwide average, of what men do for doing the same work at the same job. This kind of gender discrimination can happen under the radar since salaries are considered private and rarely published.

Laws specifying sex discrimination are established in different countries in the world. These laws protect women as well as men actually. The basic belief behind the law is that all humans should be treated fairly, without regard to gender.

People need to be treated fairly at work. The boss should not assign work to a woman but not a man just because they think that male could not work well in that job. They should judge the work that needs to be accomplished based on the ability of the employees but not the gender of them.

Therefore, gender and sex discrimination is regarded as one of the most important laws in modern society which can improve the harmony between people in the world. Equal pay for equal work is no longer about race, but applies to gender as well.
