Discriminatory barrier keeping a certain class of people out of an upper echelon of American government. Distinguished from a glass ceiling because not only is this class prevented from rising to the next level, they cannot even see what is going on up there.

Coined by incoming Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

Discriminatory barrier keeping a certain class of people out of an upper echelon of American government.

( No, not a "certain class." As the first female speaker of the house she was specifically talking about women. They were the original victims in the term "glass ceiling." )

Distinguished from a glass ceiling because not only is this class prevented from rising to the next level, they cannot even see what is going on up there.

( LOL NO, not even close. It's because there's a shit ton of marble in the capitol building, not because she randomly pulled marble out of her ass to use as an example of an opaque material. )

GJ UD for putting an obviously ignorant interpretation as the definition of the day! DURRRRRRR
