Abstract

This study provides information about the employees' experiences and feelings about gender disparities at their schools. The study looked at four private schools in Bansbari, Kathmandu. The data was gathered in 2019 for my master's thesis. The four organizations that were chosen had 139 full-time teachers then. Out of 139 teachers, 48 were selected using the snowball sampling technique; participants were 28 women and 20 men. Information was gathered via a questionnaire and field visit. The outcome shows inequality in many areas, including remuneration, working hours, the hiring procedure, promotion time, permission to leave, wearing uniforms, and more.  

The findings indicate that female employees began working earlier than their male colleagues. Female teachers were junior teachers at the time and rarely received promotions compared to male teachers. There were significant discrepancies in income; 28.57% of female employees received the lowest remuneration, or less than Rs. 11,000, while no male teachers fell into this category.
