Women experience discomfort and stress not only by the open sexism, but also because of its subtle forms. It was proved by scientists from the University of Melbourne in the analysis of 88 independent research on the topic of sexual discrimination, writes The Daily Mail.

Gender discrimination affects the quality of life, reduces performance and suppresses the desire to work. Usually the victim of sexism at work, unhappy with their rulers are stronger than other workers. Worst of all felt like women in men's teams, "men's" work (military forces, law firms, financial companies).
