What does "glass ceiling" mean?

I hear it with reference to women.


Answer by  bunnygirl (779)

A glass ceiling means a salary cap, specifically in the case of when the person is qualified for a job but is still limited by arbitrary designations, such as gender.

It means that some women reach a point in their career when they will no longer be able to advance or get promoted due to their gender. This has nothing to do with their ability to do the job, they won't be promoted because they are women.
