This article presents evidence on the career success of young women managers and suggests an interaction between age and seniority as young women managers outpace their male counterparts in career progression. Hence the glass ceiling may be seen as “time bounded”. Three alternative explanations are presented: a sea change in women’s careers; that young women’s careers are fundamentally different from older women’s; that the glass ceiling moved up the hierarchy and affects only senior positions.
