Will this #MeToo movement curtail the scope of employment for women?Nowadays people are discussing various aspects and significance of #MeToo movement. Some people are saying that this movement would curtail the scope of employment of the women, because employers would hesitate to employ the young women. I have been thinking seriously about this issue.
I feel that in the Government sector, the women candidates won't face any problem because of this movement, because in Government, the selection is completely based on merit and maximum stress is given on written examination. Interview, if any, carries only 20% weightage.
However, in the private sector, there is a scope of choice if more than one candidates are of almost same quality/ability. In such cases, the interviewer, due to the ongoing #MeToo movement, may prefer male candidates if he/she thinks that the organization may face problem in future with female candidates. In such cases, the scope of employment of female candidates would get curtailed.
Members! Kindly indicate your opinion on this issue. A logical and less acrimonious debate is expected.
