Was Jill Abramson fired because she is a woman?

The executive editor of The New York Times, Jill Abramson, has been fired for confronting with her boss on her salary. It is said that she was getting less salary than her predecessors. The tenure period of Jill Abramson was less than three years and she was not happy with the given compensation.

On the other hand, New York Times said that “media is creating hype, there was no issue of compensation with Abramson, and she would receive her benefits as per the remuneration policy of the company”.

It goes without saying that editor-in-chief of the prestigious newspaper, Le Monde, Natalie Nougayrède had also been forced to leave her job owing to her chauvinistic nature. What a curious coincidence. It is the natural tendency that men always consider women less intelligent. It has been observed that women do not enjoy the same degree of affection that is being enjoyed by men in most of the news organizations.

Apart from this, it has been researched that most of the women jobs seekers do not negotiate salary with their bosses. They accept what they are offered. They are not cunning like men. They are submissive by nature and do not like to confront with their bosses. This is what media is saying in the case of Abramson.

Last but not the least Abramson was the first woman who had been promoted to executive editor post in New York Times and she had worked on this post for more than 2 years in the news organization.
