Abstract

The paradox is identified of the few women who attain high managerial positions compared with public perceptions of extensive occupational progress on the part of women entering the labourforce. In accounting for this paradox the status of research and theory on women in management in the US is described, gaps in this knowledge identified, explanations offered for the current state of development, and prospects for the future are considered.
