Harpreet Singh, Dr. Ella Mittal
Despite of continuous political efforts, legislative reforms and after passing 50 years of second wave of feminist social and political movement, the representation of women in upper rungs of career ladder of organisation is not noticeable enough. This paper examines the presence of glass ceiling and the factors contributing towards it in the private health care sector in northern India. The study is based on primary data collected from 131 female doctors working in leading private hospitals in northern India. It has been seen that there is an increase in the number of women at higher levels but, still glass ceiling is very common. The lack of representation of women at top level, top management's commitment towards them and some personal factors are the major reasons for glass ceiling.
