Abstract

Suggests that the entrenched cultural norms affect the progress of women into and through the ranks of management. Uses culturally disparate, economically similar societies to seek an insight into female progression up the corporate ladder. Employs a social‐structural framework for analysis to explore comparative statistics. Conclude that cultural differences substantially influence the social, organisational and legal mechanisms that encourage or discourage discrimination.
