I would n't need to collect data from any job site, as there were many national and international assignments for which I did not qualify as those assignments required men to deliver in those roles. The job description never mentioned anything as such, hence I have no legal way to prove it. This was not one but repeated incidents.
My learning , even if a standard is set , it fundamentally depends on the nature of the job.I agree few jobs such as receptionist, front desk or counsellor may primarily hire ladies. But in the bigger arena, merit and excellence holds the key.
Here's a post which stands in contrast to your view.

Dear Professional,
You are wrong and doesn't seem to be HR person. Just look into yourselves. What you are lacking and to what extent. Sharpen your skills to that extent, that even the most glamorous female may be judged on lower scale as that of yours. We have never came across such cases in our last 30 years career. Jobs meant for male are secured by males and those for females by female.regards

Hi ,Dear friends giving importance to women is quite common in the world. Few jobs totally depend upon women only without them the company is unable to run. Not only India it happens across the World.Please do not take it personally or gender bias.You people are educated and you would not say like this.
i agree, but not able to trace the mentality of employers (if think us from unemployment side), as a HR it is suggested to recruit female candidates as subordinates.
Sir there might be some misconception sir. I never felt like that. Rather i felt married women are given less priority because of the stereotyping fact that women cannot concentrate after marriage/child birth and hampers the productivity. So they are less preffered in many jobs.
Hope you understand.
Trust God, you will definitely get what you deserve.
All the best !!

Employers hire males and females according to the situation and the dept in which they are going to work.
1. For front office, receptionist, customer support positions, females are appointed to attract and grab the attention of the customers.
2. For HR, females are preferred because no employee would go for physical fight with females (stated earlier) and problem solving becomes more easy for the management.
3. For production and other dept's where hard work and efforts are involved, males are given priority.
4. For marketing the products men are preferred as it involves traveling and during the promotional activities females are given priority.
When it comes to software, equal priority is given as it involves brain work.
However, in my perspective, most of the higher management are men and they have female subordinates (in my experience).
I am sorry, if I hurt any one. This is purely based on my experience, thoughts and ideas.
