(FROM THE ARTICLE: Men and women go to the same business meetings, have the same colleagues, strive for the same jobs up the ladder. Yet a major new study by LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Co. shows that men still get more promotions, more challenging assignments and more access to top leaders. And while growing numbers of women are negotiating for raises and promotions, they also face pushback when they do. A Journal Report looks at the different worlds that men and women inhabit at work—and what can be done to make them more equal.)
