The glass ceiling effect describes the male predominance in executive positions. Researchers from Canada now investigated young business women’s attitudes regarding the glass ceiling. They found that women perceive the glass ceiling in gender-stereotype threatening ways, blame their personal limitations and work-family choices for its existence and sense a range of obstacles to their advancement. It is interesting to note, that participants predominantly restricted choices regarding career and family to favor one over the other, whereas only a few participants expressed a desire for work-family balance.
