Sexism is a problem. Still. Double-standards operate to limit the opportunities available to individuals. It limits women in their roles in the public sphere. It also limits men in their roles in the private sphere. In the home, the roles of men are often considered to be secondary. Secondary to his role in the public sphere of work, but also, as secondary to the role of the woman. In this private sphere, men are often treated as invisible at best, or villain at worst. This is the 'other glass ceiling.'
