More Women In China Rise Up Corporate Ladder, Still Face Discrimination, Survey Shows

April 30, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
In China, 30 percent of women are occupying senior management positions within companies, according to a survey by Starcom MediaVest Group. Many women, however, are not fairly compensated for their contribution, with their salaries about two-thirds of the salaries of their male counterparts. Results of the survey also found that although many respondents view men as equals, almost 88 percent of women said marriage and having babies make them less equal and limit their career opportunities in the corporate world. Modernization has transformed marriage and motherhood from a vocation into an obligation that limits women's chances for personal fulfillment, according to Starcom MediaVest national research and insights director for Greater China Jeffrey Tan. This perhaps led more than 90 percent of women to agree that marrying the right man, defined as a man with large enough bank balance, is important.
