After carrying out scientific research, I found three articles justifying the assertion of the subject.
The first article states: “women are less satisfied with their jobs when they have a female boss. Male job satisfaction, by contrast, is unaffected.” Artz, B., & Taengnoi, S. (2016).
In another after conducting a survey, the result was as follows: “respondents who had a preference preferred to work for a man more than a woman” Powell, G. N., & Butterfield, D. A. (2015). “Overall, these results suggest that the preference to work for a man or a woman is a matter of both sex and gender.” Powell, G. N., & Butterfield, D. A. (2015).
Finally, in the third article the results were as follows: “A small majority (54%) of participants claimed to have no preference for the gender of their boss, but the remaining participants reported preferring male over female bosses” Elsesser, K. M., & Lever, J. (2011).
We can therefore conclude that, even though we are fighting against gender inequalities, in the workplace it is shown that, as far as leader preference is concerned, workers prefer a male boss in most cases.
