Degrading Work Environment

My boyfriend works in a male dominat

environment. However, there are a few

women that work in his office, in the

same type of position as he fills. It is a

very small company and the owner is

there the majority of the time. My

boyfriend says the owner consistently

makes comments in front of and

directed at these female coworkers,

such as women are not as smart as

men, men dominate this particular

industry and women are there to be eye

candy for their clients. My boyfriend's

supervisor has told him that another

guy and my boyfriend are on a different

''path'' than the women, even though the

women started much earlier than my

boyfriend and his male coworker. This

path is meant to bring about greater

benefits for my boyfriend much faster.

My boyfriend has not told me all of the

details, but he says he feels extremely

uncomfortable and I am wondering

what he can do, since the owner is the

one harassing and providing the

uncomfortable environment. Is this

illegal? What can my boyfriend do?
