The Glass Ceiling by Dottie Chandler
Thesis Statement
Women all over the world work for big and small companies. But for some reason
men still overpower women in the modern world
History
• Supposedly one of the first women's rights movments was in the Roman Republic (500-20 BC)
• Women have always wanted to make money and work
Glass Ceiling in America
•Women are not likely to be the head of a corporation or an important role in the business
•Women are accountable for about 3 percent of the CEO publicity traded US companies.
Glass Ceiling in Other Countries
•In other countries sexism, equality, and the glass ceiling are worse
•In Vatican City women cannot vote and get jobs
•Women are not allowed to do certain things that men can do, like driving, voting, and working
Statistics
•98 female members of Congress overall out of 535 members
•20% female Senators (16 Democrats, 4 Republicans)
•17.9% female Representatives (47 Democrats, 24 Republicans)
Service Project
My service project was to create a piece of artwork that represents the glass ceiling. I chose this because one of my teachers asked me if I like to draw and I answered her saying ,"Yeah but I'm not that good." After a conversation about drawing we decided I would create a drawing representing the glass ceiling.
