Journal of Community Positive Practices, 2019, issue 2, 43-57
This paper analyzes whether and to what extent women civil servants are discriminated in terms of recruitment and selection, appointment and placement, transfer, promotion and duty allocation in Administration in Bangladesh. This research applied a qualitative approach and an interview method was used for data collection. The research found that women faced differential treatments because of the nature of jobs and the lack of good working environment. Although there was no legal point for discrimination regarding HR practices, women were found fewer in number in some lucrative and challenging positions. The study revealed that they were not discriminated; they were rather favoured for their desired placements. They evaded some placements for the sake of household activities and childrens' wellbeing. The avoidance inhibited them to gain experiences that indirectly led to exclusion. The study recommends the clear career path, setting preconditions for promotion and arrangements of flexible working so that women can design their career and personal planning.
