Anthropology and Sociology Seminar Series Semester One 2018 : GENDER FLUIDITY AT WORK: EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION AGAINST THE NON-BINARY Other events...
Using an experimental research design and a visual methodology, this study examines the extent of employment discrimination against non-binary job applicants whom identify and present as neither male, nor female. It employs social identity theory to investigate the way in which recruiters tend to categorize job applicants into discrete male or female social identities. The results of the study suggest that masculine men are rated significantly higher on employability than feminized men, feminine women, and masculinized women. Although there is a significant reduction in employability ratings between masculine men and feminized men, the same reduction is not found between feminine women and masculinized women. All women, regardless of their feminine or masculine characteristics, are rated equally low. The study has important implications for gender discrimination in employee selection decision-making.
