The Authors of the research study hypothesize that despite the claims double standards are fading and we are becoming more accepting, they are still present and may still influence the behavior of men and women. they used various research methods like experimental designs, ethnographic, interviews, focus groups, and linguistic analyses. They also included a critique of the pros/ strengths and cons/weaknesses of each of their methods. a presentation of the evidence for "contemporary double standards that are nuances and context dependent." They also found qualitative studies that focused directly on double standards through their computerized database searches. They found that a majority of men and women participants were mainly worried about being judged, more importantly, their reputation. The risks of having sex and being judged for it is greater for a young woman than for a young man. The women in the study argued by losing their reputation it would lead to sexual harassment, being labeled, loss of friends, being shamed and alienated. One of the major double standards from two of the focus groups. On the contrary, the young men had more acceptance when disclosing of their sexual encounters without any judgment or risk of reputation. Sexual permissiveness between genders has had effects on women and men, however, a majority being women. Mainly due to the social constructs that limit a woman's sexual behavior with fear of rejection. Abolishing shame that comes with the stigmatization of any sexual activity a woman is a part of, their sexual permissiveness should be the way it has been for men. Star Llenas Women with disabilities in the work place This case study focuses on women discrimination in the workplace and their disadvantages while being disabled. It also speaks about their initial stages of employment. The hypothesis for this case study was to determine if women with disabilities are discriminated against compared to those without during the hiring process and compared their wages as well. For this study researchers used the system SIPP which ask detailed questions. The questions had to do with finances, social, disability, and limitations. They created two variables, one was the “Satisfactory” transition to another job and the other was known as “Unsatisfactory” transition. They had an equation to measure the wage gap and the Heckman’s two-step procedure to account for bias situations. Women who have a disability seems to have a higher outcome for wage discrimination. As for the outcome in the job transition section, there were mixed results. Like the researchers had already figured the employers preferred women without disabilities vs. those who had. Women who had disabilities were less likely to make a “satisfactory” change but more likely to make “unsatisfactory” changes. Then there was the finding that showed a large wage penalty for all women. This case study was interesting because not only did it speak about the discrimination that women go through in the work world but also included women with disabilities.
