The glass ceiling, glass cliff, and now – the glass escalator

My thanks to Petronella for pointing me towards a story to be filed away under (her words, not mine), ‘Stuff you couldn’t make up’. Not unless, she points out, you’re a female academic. Here’s the link to the story Petronella found online. Enjoy:

I was particularly intrigued by (American) Professor Goldberg’s statement that, ‘Having a greater proportion of men raises salaries’. Given that two of the three fields she cites are overwhelmingly found in the public sector, what would be the mechanism by which salaries are raised? A question I’ll be putting to Professor Goldberg in an email later today.


About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
