Le "plafond de verre" : les freins à la mobilité ascendante des femmes dans les entreprises

Abstract : From the 60s, the massive entry of women into wage labor caused a major upheaval in society, promoting their empowerment and reducing gender inequalities in the workplace. However, the history of professional equality, marked by a paradoxical phenomenon has yet to complete : while women are more involved in the economic activity of the country and that many laws have been made in their favor, the world work remains highly discriminating for them. Indeed, even today, many women, despite their qualifications and skills, do not pursue the careers they deserve. These professional gender inequalities can be characterized by the phenomenon of the "glass ceiling" metaphorical expression which designates the barriers and difficulties, sometimes barely noticeable, which hinder the upward mobility of women in high organizational spheres. This Research Dissertation aims to understand why women are so few in places in decision making in companies. In an attempt to respond to this problem, a research was carried out three parts: a theoretical part literary gathering elements for the emancipation of women in the workplace and the phenomenon of the glass ceiling, a practice with the realization of a field survey in which more women managers were interviewed and assigned on their professional experience and different obstacles they have encountered during their careers and a third party in which the results of field survey will be analyzed.
