Abstract: In the quest for equality in Nigerian workplaces, a lot of vices have been brought to light it has been observed that despite the existence of instruments of protection and promotion of gender equality globally, Nigeria has been slow to implementation. This has denied females from fully participating and contributing to labour of Nigeria. The glass ceiling describes invisible but prevalent barriers limiting the progress of minority groups and women within workplaces which engenders emotions in women especially and has been adduced to the development of female roles in organisations despite these groups possessing exceptional qualities and better managerial skills. This could be made manifest in forms of sexual harassment, forms of discrimination, wage differences, victimisation and so on. This paper explores the causes and manifestations and also provide some evidence of these vices against women in Nigerian
