Overview
Gender (in)equalities in workplaces have emerged as a key concern in the 
contemporary world of work with concepts and practices such as diversity 
management, equal treatment, equal opportunity, human rights and human 
dignity having gained immense popularity and advocacy. Gender (in)equality 
has become a main item in the HRM agenda (Dickens, 1998) with HRM 
professionals, policy makers, and educators being very attentive and mindful to 
the diverse and complex issues related to gender (in)equality in organisations. 
While areas and issues of gender (in)equality have been in discussion to a great 
extent in the West, there is a critical need to bring this pressing subject to the 
forefront and provide space for broader discussion in the South Asian context 
(which is defined by SAJHRM as comprising of eight countries, namely, India, 
Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal and Afghanistan). The 
aim of this special issue is to provide a platform for research examining gender 
(in)equalities in South Asia. Researchers and scholars can identify and examine 
common issues in South Asia as well as highlight country or society specific 
gender issues.
South Asian countries’ unique traditions, beliefs, work settings and 
organisational practices present diverse and distinctive gender issues. In 
addition, cultures in these countries, masculinity for example, play an important 
role. The incessant increase in women’s participation in the labour market, their 
upward progress in organisations, their move into non-traditional occupations 
and industries also pose interesting avenues for exploration. South Asia also 
has a large number of migrant workers, both women and men. There are issues 
related to workers in Free Trade Zones, dramatically highlighted by recent 
deaths of workers due to fires at Bangladesh garment factories and low wages. 
Business Process Outsourcing (BPOs) and call centers have become a popular 
trend changing traditional work norms and practices in many South Asian 
countries. These work settings and trends have created diverse gender issues 
that need deeper discussion and debate.
 
The special issue seeks to address relevant issues in this regard, such as,
·         What are the impacts of these different trends on gender in 
organisations and other social settings?
·         What are the gender issues that these trends give rise to?
·         Is equal treatment practiced in organisations?
·         Is equal employment opportunity provided?
·         Does occupational segregation, ‘sticky floors’, the ‘glass ceiling’ and so 
on still exist?
·         Does gender impact on leadership?
·         How does culture impact on gender (in)equalities?
·         How does the legislation system support/hinder gender (in)equality?
·         What policy formulation and implementation challenges do gender issues 
pose to human resource management (HRM)? What are the likely strategies to 
address these challenges?
 
The papers selected for this special issue will be published in SAJHRM in 2015.
