Subject: RE Glass Ceiling

[Corrected date]

Thomas Goetz in this week's Village Voice has a bit at the end of his "Press Clips" column

speculating on the term "glass ceiling."

"In this week's report on women's earnings, Barron's Gene Epstein traces the term 'glass ceiling' to

a March 1986 coinage in it sister publication, The Wall Street Journal. But a random walk down

Nexis shows U.P.I. used it in May 1985 and quoted the term in March 1984--two full years

before the Journal."

I somehow think this term is much older. Barry? Anyone?
