In China, it is increasingly difficult for female college students to find employment. The main reasons are professional gender division, weak diplomas, gender discrimination in the workplace, and being tied to traditional gender concepts. It is necessary to require schools, the society, and the China government in particular to make active efforts to adhere to the principle of differential treatment. Focus on or prioritize the disadvantage of women, and adjust policies or actions to best benefit women and best reflect the equality between men and women.
