Glass escalator: - occupational sex segregation : concentration of a single gender in certain industries and job types, in this study- librarian, nurse, teacher, social worker. Feminized or masculinized jobs. -nursing admin is heavily dominated by men though nursing is dominated by women. - method of study: in-depth interviewing with mostly males, some females. Discrimination, dynamics of being a male in a feminized field. ‘token group’ literature- groups that are less than 15% of the population are discriminated towards. Prob: hasn’t looked at people who are dominant in society. Only looks at AA in white jobs and females in male dominated jobs. Glass escalator: male experience in feminized professions = automatic ‘pushed up’, counterposed to glass ceiling, moved by: male supervisors; professors because pushing them into more ‘masculine-identified work’ -public opinion : 1. stereotypes of what men do, mocking 2. ideas of sexual deviance : pervert for men to be kindergarten

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
