Wiki & Abstracts (no. 30) - Women in Media (Part 5)

I've noticed that some girls in our class have been looking into how women are portrayed by the media, a couple of girls are even writing in our upcoming Literacy Journal about the subject...


So, I got inspired to continue my "Women in the Media" Blog Posts!!

Make sure to check out the successful women's links, because they accomplished so much more than the small descriptions I gave!

Glass Ceiling: "the unseen, yet unbreachable barrier that keeps minorities and women from rising to the upper rungs of the corporate ladder, regardless of their qualifications or achievements." Initially, the metaphor applied to barriers in the careers of women but was quickly extended to refer to obstacles hindering the advancement of minority men, as well as women.
