In recent years, the university graduates in China market supply and demand is increasingly sharp increase in the number of supply in the labor market means that the employer in selecting new employees have a more relaxed space, further established pattern of a buyer's market, this happens all of discrimination of female students had a role in fueling. Part of the employer has the right to full freedom of choice, through explicit or implicit means, the job of university graduates discriminatory selection, which resulted in sex discrimination in employment on the labor market of college students. The theory of sex discrimination in employment is now more mature and rich.
