This study is aimed at evaluating the extent of gender discrimination in the banking sector. The study has demonstrated that gender discrimination has always been a vital issue in workplaces regardless of the industry. Women have to face a lot of issues at the workplace which leads to discrimination even though they are capable. The most common form of gender discrimination is the pay gap, career progression, and harassment. The literature has determined that women have to face discrimination in terms of their pay, bonuses, and promotions even though they are highly educated and have relevant experience. This is due to the common perception that women cannot work in long run and have to quit working. The findings have determined that gender discrimination is prevalent in the banking sector mostly in terms of the pay gap and career progressions. The women are not offered and promoted to managerial positions or are made part of the board as it is believed that they may face problems in managing their work and personal life. However, in countries like Europe, this gap has been minimised and women are not forming part of boards.
