 What is the Glass Ceiling?
The term glass ceiling is most often applied in business situations in which women feel, either accurately or not, that men are deeply entrenched in the upper echelons of power, and women, try as they might, find it nearly impossible to break through.
The term glass ceiling became a permanent part of the American lexicon with a subsequent article in the Wall Street Journal published on 24 March 1986 by Carol Hymowitz and Timothy Schellhardt.
While many women insist that the glass ceiling is a real barrier to accessing male-dominated positions in business, many challengers say that it exists mostly because women choose to focus more of their time on family and, in the end, cannot dedicate as much time to their career.

Glass allows a structure, or at least parts of it, to seem to disappear or float in midair.
But glass rarely exhibits such enviable strength in practice, Varshneya adds, because "when you have a flaw in glass, it acts as a stress concentrator." He explains that any sheet of glass has countless "flaws," places where there is a space between two chains of glass atoms.
Glass companies can overcome the problem created by these flaws by toughening glass through a lengthy, expensive process that effectively creates an invisible shield on the surface of the glass.

 Shattering the Glass Ceiling
Because glass is clear, those existing under such a ceiling might not, at first, even notice that a barrier was in place which separated them from higher levels.
Yet even if what such advocates of "equality" claimed about glass ceilings were true, they would not be justified in using immoral means to achieve a purportedly positive end.
The latest twist on this verbal sleight-of-hand comes in the form of the previously mentioned "glass ceiling."

Val Singh, the report's co-author, said: "The research highlights a glass door to the executive boardroom with a significant lack of women in the senior executive committee, the next generation of female executive and non-executive directors."
But one reason for this, she said, is that the 2003 Higgs report on corporate governance has led to a reduction in executive directorships and hence more competition for the fewer executive seats.

 Feminism and Women's Studies: The Glass Ceiling
In doing the research for this paper, I was struck by the picture that was revealed to me about what it means to be a woman living in the United States as we approach the next century.
The potential is there for women to achieve an equal footing with men, but the social mores and male attitudes make an effective barrier to women rising above a certain point; this tendency brings to mind a glass ceiling.
Because it is invisible until one reaches its border, women believe that equal rights can become a reality for them, but until that ceiling caves in, women will continue to be second-class citizens despite changes in the law and despite successful litigation.
