Here is an enlightening post about sexism in the workplace. It turns out that in places where men are dramatically over-represented like Fortune 500 CEOs and Hedge Fund managers and Congress, the few women that have the jobs have dramatically higher results than their male counterparts.
For those who pay attention, this should hardly come as a surprise. For those that don’t, how does one explain this phenomenon without pointing to blatant sexism? It would certainly appear that women have to be significantly better at their jobs than men to even be considered for some positions.
If there were no sexism, wouldn’t you expect both men and women to perform about the same regardless of representation? Then, you might have an argument by saying that women just aren’t as interested in certain positions. But that is quite obviously not the truth.
So explain it. I’m listening.
