          Prof. Joan C. Williams on Why Women Are More Likely to Be Denied Flextime

          Two new studies conducted by a Yale researcher have found that women are less likely than men to get their requests for flexible work schedules approved.

          Joan C. Williams, the director of the Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California’s Hastings College of the Law, said that gender-based stereotypes are probably responsible for the second study’s findings:

          "For women, it’s the fear of triggering the strongest form of gender bias against women— the maternal wall. And for men, there’s fear of triggering a stigma on the grounds they’re too feminine. So both forms of stigma are driven by gender bias, which means that allowing the flexibility stigma to affect people’s careers is a potential violation of federal anti-discrimination law."
