I was reading a New York Times piece on men taking jobs in traditionally female fields expecially during the current economic situation. The paragraph that struck me was the one stating that men in female dominated fields have no difficulty being promoted and may indeed benefit from a glass escalator effect. I had not heard that term before, but gathered that it meant that there is an invisible process whereby men in these fields find themselves rapidly promoted as opposed to women who meet with a glass ceiling. On the other hand, some studies I looked at said that men in these fields have difficulty being promoted. Now I would be interested in reading more, especially as to how this plays out in the field of education.
