小编摘要:看来女性在某些方面还是不如男性来得方便啊…

女性在职场升迁过程中遭遇的“玻璃天花板(glass ceiling)”大概很多人都听说过了。不过,在竞争更加激烈的商场,女性又遭遇了另一种障碍:grass ceiling(草坪天花板)。在高尔夫球场边打球边谈生意似乎成了男人们的专有权利,女性往往被排除在外。

Grass ceiling refers to a set of social, cultural, and discriminatory barriers that prevent or discourage women from using golf to conduct business.

Grass ceiling(草坪天花板)指阻止女性通过高尔夫运动来做生意的一系列社会及文化歧视性障碍。

Most private golf clubs prevent women from playing during the most popular golfing hours such as weekend mornings. Many clubs also have men-only dining rooms and prevent women from voting on club rules. And, when a couple divorces, or a male member dies, the club often orders the woman to clean out her locker.

大部分私人高尔夫俱乐部都禁止女性在周末早晨等高尔夫高峰时段去打球。很多俱乐部设有男士专用餐厅,制定俱乐部规则时不接受女性投票。当遇到夫妇离婚或者男性会员亡故的情况时,俱乐部通常会把与之相关的女性成员请出俱乐部。

Many women say the restrictions hurt their efforts to be equals in the business world. Like the executive "glass ceiling," the grass ceiling keeps women from advancing in business.

很多女性表示,这些限制抵消了她们为争取商业世界中平等地位而付出的努力。草坪天花板与升迁时遭遇的玻璃天花板一样,阻挡了女性在商界前进的步伐。
