Question and answer
Do you think a “glass ceiling” can be overcome through personal initiative, or is it a form of institutional discrimination?
I think that the reason for the glass ceiling is the discrimination DESPITE intiaitive, education and creativity. [ There are plenty of women and minorities that are well connected, well educated and very intuitive but cant get above that glass ceiling strictly for some discrimination. i.e.- Hilary Clinton was passed over in exchange for Obama. Obviously we were able to overcome race, but not
gender. ]

Do you think a “glass ceiling” can be overcome through personal initiative, or is it a form of institutional discrimination?
Weegy: In my opinion the "glass ceiling" is something that could be overcome by person initiative of a high caliber, by proving that you are as good or better than the others. [ Though by definition it is institutional discrimination, and despite all the attention it always gets only minute changes are made. ] (More)

Provide an example of discrimination in history. How did the people involved respond to the discrimination?
Weegy: Before 1871 when women were given the right to vote there was a lot of discrimination for women everywhere. They were only allowed to work certain jobs, if they had children they had to stay at home with them. [ They had eventually had enough of it and started to go to women meeting and revolted to the discrimination in several different ways, varying from holing up signs to not cooking. ] (More)
