Women aren’t hitting a glass ceiling because that doesn’t exist, it’s a baseless conspiracy theory, as I explained in my book The Glass Ceiling Delusion. The prime reason for women’s representation at senior levels of business has long been understood, the key factor being gender differences in work ethic, as Dr Catherine Hakin, a leading sociologist, explained in her Preference Theory in 2000 – while four in seven British men are work-centred, only one in seven British women is. She found similar numbers in other European countries she researched.
The psychologist Susan Pinker interviewed many female senior executives and reported her findings in The Sexual Paradox. The bottom line? A higher proportion of women than men are unwilling to make the sacrifices necessary to reach the top level in business, i.e. Pinker confirmed Preference Theory.
With women being preferenced for senior executive positions, the notion of a glass ceiling is now laughable. So some paranoid feminist has invented the broken ladder. I predict we’ll be hearing about this new baseless conspiracy theory for the next 10 years. Not one journalist in the worldwide mainstream media will debunk it. Our thanks to Stu for this.
