ABSTRACT
Over the last 90 years women have battled to become equal with men in all aspects of life and work. Women have made enormous advances in education and career but equality in pay and promotions in the workplace still elude them. It is well documented, widely known and discussed that women earn less. Why is this happening and is inequality as skewed as most think? If there is a "glass ceiling" why is it there and what can women do to navigate around it to become successful top level executives with matching compensation? What can managers do to ensure that women have as many opportunities as men and equal pay? These topics will be discussed and addressed in this paper.
