() and Claire Dambrin
Abstract: Gender issues are examined in the French and the
Anglo-Saxon accounting literatures. The authors propose an overview of the
theoretical frameworks and the methodologies used in the selected articles.
An analysis of the glass ceiling in the accounting profession is provided.
This article highlights the triple nature (individual, organisational and
social) of obstacles that hinder the career path of women in the accounting
profession. The detailed analysis of this specific theme confirms that
methodological, theoretical and political questions are deeply embedded.
Keywords: gender; glass ceiling; accounting profession; feminism; methodology; (follow links to similar papers)
