Abstract

Despite professional eligibilities and ample opportunities, female employees are not aptly represented in the higher corridors of organisational power. Patterns of gender segmentation are still persisting. Studies disclose women are quite often subjugated and marginalised with respect to promotion and remuneration. This study explores certain factors associated with gender discrimination in Bahrain and identifies extrinsic and intrinsic factors that are likely to prevent advancement of women in organisations. The findings of the study clearly divulge the gender prejudiced discrimination against women. Hence, the study exhorts the organisations of the twenty first century to be enablers of inclusive growth and equal employment practices for holistic upward spiral.
