Thornley went on to say that by hiring women, he got better-qualified employees to whom he was able to give more responsibility. “And [they were] still often relatively cheap compared to what we would’ve had to pay someone less good of a different gender,” he concluded. To illustrate his point he showed a slide that said: “Women: Like Men, Only Cheaper.”

Le donne hanno superato gli uomini nell’istruzione, e contribuiscono sempre più ai bilanci familiari. Eppure rimane un notevole divario nei redditi (in Italia del 43,5%).

One reason women may be wary of their own is that they may well face penalties for helping each other out.The Gallup data suggest, though, that many in the world-rocking millennial generation would still rather not have a woman in charge

L’exemple des couples à double carrière que j’ai étudiés prouve que cette conciliation est d’une certaine manière quelque chose qui se joue dans le couple dès le début de la vie professionnelle et de la vie de couple. Ces couples démontrent que quand l’ambition de faire carrière est claire dès le départ pour les deux parties, ils mettent en place des processus facilitateurs même si ceux-ci ne règlent encore pas tout, les femmes se sentant encore de nos jours plus impliquée que les hommes dans la vie du foyer. Ce dernier point peut expliquer que les femmes créatrices sont plus âgées.
