Male Chauvinism

Male chauvinism is the belief that men are more superior than women. Those with this prejudice irrationally believe that women deserve less than equal treatment as compared to men. They disparage and discriminate against females since they are perceived as the weaker sex.

For instance, in the workplace, female employees are excluded from business decisions since they are thought of as better located inside houses than in the corporate world. Another example is sexual harassment; female employees become targets of sexual jokes and unwanted touches. Also, some male managers or supervisors offer job promotions in exchange for sexual favors; if the female employees decline, they become victims of indifference, underpaid work, or other forms of workplace bullying.
