Gender inequality is significant in big corporations, and is well-known that females are underrepresented in higher management functions and earn lower wages for the same work. Equal work for equal pay is not yet the standard in big corporations. This study aimed to investigate the determining factors that lead to this inequality. In this research, gender inequality is measured by the size of the wage gap and stagnation in career advancement. By means of a case study on past literature and research, this paper found that the Glass Ceiling Effect plays a significant role in maintaining this status quo. Gender stereotyping and current work-family arrangements are the core sources of the Glass Ceiling Effect that females experience, and in its place, the Glass Ceiling Effect ensures that females end up in lower paying sectors and encounter unfair treatment concerning receiving promotion.

Keywords: Glass ceiling effect, gender equality, wage gap, career advancement stagnation.
