Glass ceiling

Men could be to blame for the glass ceiling but it may not be due to today's prejudices. For many years before now women were discriminated and men were hired for the executive positions making them the dominant sex in those positions. Just following tradition and not questioning it may reinforce the hiring of men. a woman makes about 76 cents for every dollar a man does nationwide,(CNBC.com 2015) 

Although many also say there is no glass ceiling or women are to blame. Most statistical analyses are done without including maternity leaves, sick days and the overall danger of the jobs, many jobs such as carpenters and construction are somewhat dangerous jobs taken up mostly by men, these jobs are plentiful and high paying in some cases, these numbers boost the income to higher numbers. If women aren't running the country or big business, it's mainly because we just don't want to. Any glass ceiling that's in place these days isn't an enemy to women (Maureen Rice 2011)
I believe women are smart and as capable as men but said by Maureen why would women want those dangerous jobs? I think a natural chivalry is done in which men have those dangerous jobs and keep the women safer. Meanwhile when women want those jobs and can prove capable they are more than welcome to those jobs
