Black Women Still Battle Glass Ceiling

Despite claims that America has entered a "post-racial" era, we can't go a day without receiving several stark reminders that racism's demise has been greatly exaggerated. And, while the fact that Black women still face enormous obstacles when trying to ascend in corporate America isn't as outrage-inducing as a story like Trayvon Martin's, you can make the argument that those findings are even more damaging.

As long as we're kept out of those boardrooms and high-ranking positions, it'll remain difficult for us to affect the types of lasting changes that can impact generations. Perhaps our next cause du jour should be a collective effort to make some serious cracks in the glass ceiling.
