Challenges Still Exist, Poll Says

Working women still feel the weight of the glass ceiling, according to a recent nationwide survey. In an online poll conducted by CareerWomen.com, more than 96 percent of women polled said they believed corporate culture continues to favor men.

The majority of those surveyed said they are excluded from formal networks and hindered by stereotypes and preconceptions about a woman's capabilities in the workplace. More than half thought that male management perceived women's family responsibilities would interfere with their work.

"Women are still facing challenges when it comes to career opportunities and advancement," said JillXan Donnelly of CareerWomen.com. "The responses and comment from this poll make it very clear that women have to look very hard for advancement opportunities and make it a priority."
