Bullard, Angela M.; Wright, Deil S.
Public Administration Review, v53 n3 p189-202 May-Jun 1993
Data from 1984 (n=489) and 1988 (n=658) surveys show that female executives in state government have progressed in top positions in certain types of agencies, but much progress has occurred by avoiding, not breaking, the glass ceiling. Most notable male-female differences are in party affiliation, age, interagency mobility, career progress, and gubernatorial appointment. (SK)
