Discusses the findings from a recent Australian study on the status of women in libraries. Poses the question of whether a “double‐glazed” ceiling exists for women in librarianship despite their movement since the late 1980s into library management positions and legislative initiatives. Utilizes both survey data and information obtained from follow‐up interviews with female librarians. Also questions the usefulness of the metaphor, the “glass ceiling”, as an explanation for gender inequality.
