User: Escalator

Weegy: Glass elevator (or glass escalator) ? Some believe there is a rapid promotion of men over women, especially into management, in female-dominated fields such as nursing. [ They say men in these fields are promoted with ease ? they actually have to struggle not to advance due to facing invisible pressures and expectations to move up from where they currently are. This is based on traditional gender roles and stereotypes that men are expected to be in the chief roles, while women are to be in the subordinate positions. Therefore, in the fields where men are less common, they receive differential treatment that favors them to exert their authority and control in the workplace. Others believe that men in female-dominated professions are discriminated against and treated worse than women, the way women are treated in other professions. ]
