Abstract

Gender imbalance is an issue that is as old as mankind's history and we have reason not to be over-idealistic in our desires; when we recollect that women were acknowledged to schools and colleges just 150 years ago. Information for scholarly staff by gender demonstrates examples of both even isolations with respect to women' absence of cooperation in logical territories, and vertical isolation, which is utilized to characterize the challenges women face regarding employment movement. The quality of education highly depends on the performance of the academicians and the policies of the institute. Gender equality of academicians and policies of institute would result in gender equality of students and future scholars. However, it is still unfortunate to observe the gender inequality both in universities’ faculty and their administrative policies. This study is in compliance with current literature trends, which reveal that women scholars are generally more satisfied with their job. In conclusion, the notion that men and women of academia enjoy different levels of satisfaction with their professional choices is reinforced.
