Gender inequality in the workplace is one of the problems that generate the most significant impact on society. Men in the industry in general, and in the fashion sector in particular, gain greater recognition to achieve managerial positions. In contrast, women represent a smaller percentage of senior management, and their limit of professional growth is established in areas with less responsibility.
In collaboration with the Council of American Fashion Designers (CFDA) and the consultancy McKinsey, has conducted a study that analyzes the gender gap that exists in the fashion industry. The Glass Survey, it has been shown that the presence of women in the sector is more conditioned despite representing the primary source of income that is three times more than men’s spending.
Currently, only 14% of the big fashion firms are run by women. Through 535 surveys to industry professionals and 24 interviews with people of both genders, it has been found that 100% of women consider gender inequality a problem and only 50% of men believe that it is about an aspect to modify. Despite being an industry where there is a large number of women working, the study shows that men are 20% more likely to move up to executive positions.
On the other hand, the feminization of medicine is already an objective reality, since we can find women in different areas of medicine for example in Sanoviv Dental we can see women dentists which are the best in their area. Besides, the number of women colleges has exceeded that of men, as reflected in the statistics of the Collegiate Health Professionals Statistics of 2017 published by the National Institute of Statistics on Wednesday.
This milestone has been possible thanks to the fact that 79 percent of the new members of professional associations were doctors. In this way, the percentage of facultative reaches 50.4 percent in 2017, by 49.7 percent in 2016.
Nursing, incontestable majority of women
The INE report also includes the number of registered professionals in Nursing, in which women remain overwhelmingly in the majority. This, which is not news in a profession historically dominated by them, has been accentuated in the last year.
Nurses, meanwhile, have also increased their number from 45,808 in 2016 to 46,979 in 2017. Although, as noted, their growth is less than that of registered nurses. Meanwhile, by autonomous communities, in all of them, women outnumber the number of men.
