Discrimination may be defined as the ?treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor or against a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individual merit.? (Landrine and Klonoff) It is not limited to a specific country, time period, or environment. Victims of discrimination also vary in the same manner. However, discrimination against women seems to be one of the more popular forms. Gender discrimination is the most frequently used term in relation to the matter. Gender roles and sexist attitudes promote the continued existence of discrimination against women. Through research, discrimination against women is observed more closely and possible solutions are rendered.
