The Glass Ceiling a stepping stone to think out of the box Created by:

Küpeli Çağrı What is the Glass Ceiling? Glass Ceiling is invisible but real barrier through which the next stage or level of advancement can be seen, but cannot be reached by a section of qualified and deserving employees. There are a lot of different views about how the Glass Ceiling started and what affects it. Our ideas are summarized in pyramid The first and main thing that causes glass ceiling is society and character. Since childhood men and women are raised differently When we were children we did not know the big difference between boys and girls. Our parents and society thought us that we are not equal. Unfortunately 21st century’s society keeps pointing out these differences. The second thing is family and religion. Children are mirror of their parents. The third factor is education. Sine our first day of kindergarten we are not educated equally. We are dressed differently, we are given different toys, we are told to play different games and even we are taught to behave different. When we search for children’s toys on website they offer different toys for boys and for girls. “Build it Toys”
“Science Toys” “Art Sets”
“Pretend Play” Doesn’t it mean that women are taught to pretend? Pretend to be the weak, Glass-Ceiling-Affected gender? The Forth factor is gender roles.
A gender role is the place you hold in a family, relationship or society as a whole because you are male or female. Historically, a man's gender role was the breadwinner, earning money to support the family through outside work. A woman's gender role was to care for the family and household, providing support for the man. And the last thing is already the glass ceiling. Only men can see what’s above it. Reasons why women feel that glass ceiling exists:
•Male dominated management, which made all the decisions for the company

•Lack of proper anti discrimination law and goverment action on discrimination

•Men’s attitude towards problems faced by women

•Preference of men over women of same educational qualification and caliber

•Sexual harassment was seen as another major hindrance in the women’s career.
GC in the world Over the last decades the status of women has improved.

Now women can be educated, they can earn and control their income.

There are gender gaps In 2000 United Nations created The Millennium Development Goals which are eight international development goals that were officially established following the Millennium Summit. They have agreed to achieve these goals by the year 2015.
Eradicating extreme poverty and hunger,
Achieving universal primary education,
Promoting gender equality and empowering women,
Reducing child mortality rates,
Improving maternal health,
Combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases,
Ensuring environmental sustainability, and
Developing a global partnership for development.
The goals are: During these 13 years the gender equality has developed. Although in the last century The Glass Ceiling was thicker and harder to break, it did not mean it was impossible. "She stands as an example to our daughters that there is no glass ceiling that can’t be shattered." We have discovered that the glass ceiling is getting thinner and it is starting to crack. In last decades women’s status has increased and we are getting closed to the gender equality. How to break the Glass Ceiling? We have to ruin the pyramid that we have created in past centuries.

The glass ceiling’s collapse can start today, because “Every thought we think is creating our future.” (Louise L. Hay) Thank you!
