Today’s woman is breaking the glass ceiling.

Today’s woman is breaking the glass ceiling...

Glass Ceiling refers to those unseen, yet unbreakable barriers in the corporate world which minorities and women face while climbing or rising up the corporate ladder, irrespective of their qualifications and achievements.
The term Glass Ceiling was first coined in March 1984 by Gay Bryant, the former editor of Working Woman magazine.
There was an earlier belief that no woman can be mentally and physically as capable as a man. Unfortunately, this narrow mindset was adopted by everyone and nobody even tried to bring a change in it. And this had led to gender inequality in every field including the corporate field.
But in recent times this belief is now fading away. The women are now becoming powerful; they are being educated and are gaining confidence in themselves to do something. They have physically and mentally become stronger.
If asked to name those women (from India) who have become an example for all for breaking the glass ceiling; I would say;
Dr. Indu Shahani Principal of H.R. College, was appointed the Sheriff of Mumbai on Jan 5, 2008 who has proved to be visionary and thought leader.
