The glass ceiling is the belief of “an intangible barrier within a hierarchy that prevents women or minorities from obtaining upper-level positions” (Glass Ceiling) It is been issued in Korean society because the company give does not same chance to both sexes. For an instance, in many Korean company, even though they give same chance and condition to both women and men, at the result there are much more percents that men gets promotion then women especially there are much more less chance to get promotion for married women.

This example shows that women does not get equal rights and opportunity from the work place because of only reason, they are women which shows that the situation definitely need to change as soon as

Gender is not only about fairness and equity, it is also about economic empowerment and includes many political, social and cultural dimensions. For decades now many countries around the globe have made substantial progress towards gender equality in fields of education and work. Nonetheless there is still a gender gap, women still earn less than men, are less likely to make it to the top of the job ladder and spend probably more of their final years in poverty.

In 2011, the black unemployment rate was equal to 16.1 percent, while it was just 7.9 percent for whites (Fields and Weller, 2011). Schnurer (2014) states that “Giving more people a shot at economic success produces greater gains for society because more people are contributing”.

And it starts from how women are valued in the society especially when it comes to jobs and which gender specifically dominates certain sectors e.g. lower levels of pay which mainly employ women, such as nurses and social workers.
