Wanita Lebih Dimaklumi Bolos Kerja Dibanding Pria

Setidaknya begitulah intisari yang didapat oleh para peneliti dari penyisiran 3000 artikel New York Times mengenai absensi kerja dari tahun 1851 hingga 2004. Memang metodenya agak lemah (tanpa eksperimen atau survei langsung), tapi di sisi lain ini menunjukkan adanya bias media yang kemudian bisa mempengaruhi persepsi para pembacanya.

Omong-omong, bukan berarti kesimpulan itu mengatakan kalau wanita lebih beruntung di tempat kerja, karena menurut para peneliti yang sama, pemakluman itu jugalah yang membuat di beberapa tempat gaji dan standar kenaikan pangkat wanita sulit disetarakan dengan pria yang punya kompetensi serupa.

A new study formally links the data and the norm, indicating women miss more work than men because that’s what society expects. This seemingly benign “policy” could foster workplace discrimination in wages and advancement for women, the study authors suggest.

“The results suggest that a distinct absence culture exists for women that might legitimize their absenteeism, but it might also perpetuate gender stereotypes and lead to gender discrimination,” said researcher Eric Patton of Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.

Patton and Saint Joseph’s colleague Gary Johns examined nearly 3,000 New York Times articles dealing with work absence from 1851 through 2004, focusing on the 167 news items that mentioned women.

Overall, they found absence by women was less likely to be associated with punishment than men, and women’s absence was rarely noted as deviant.
Most of the articles (101 of the 167) mentioned domestic and family responsibilities to explain women’s absence.
