Abstract

Have you ever paid attention to whether the proportion of employment is related to sex? Would you say that ability is all that matters when it comes to employment? It is widely believed, nowadays, that as long as one performs preferably in work themselves, their sex matters not when it comes to the possibility of them getting employed by their preferred job post. However, possibly to the discomfort of many, sexual discriminations does exist in the workplace. Our research target was to find out whether or not a woman has a family plan is an important cause of gender discrimination in the labor market. By setting up comparisons between male and female with whether the applicant has a will to construct a family, we focused on the discrimination between male and female upon hiring. We narrowed down our object group to the field of real estate sales, which requires relatively less education and is more common of a job. We also decided to focus on one city in particular, Shanghai, China, for its relatively large demand in real estate sales. Our inference is that women and those with a plan of starting a family would gain a smaller possibility of getting an HR callback, amongst which women with fertility intentions would be the most discriminated.
