This paper will highlight the areas where women are feeling the crunch the most. It aims to report the findings of a study on the impacts gender discrimination can cause on the motivation level of the female staff. With this paper we hope to increase awareness that this issue can have on the productivity of female workers. This paper opts for an approach which involves an analysis of data acquired from female employees from 10 to 15 different organizations. Realizing the immensely broad scope of the research, this study has been restricted to female workers between the ages of 20 to 40. Detailed data was collected using questionnaires and one to one interviews.

This paper will help organizations better understand problems faced by their female workers. The study will help them to take necessary measures to counteract the discrimination issues and thus enhance their overall performance.
