Abstract: The massive arrival of women in the labour market, combined with their more recent arrival in the university sector, should have given them access to senior executive positions in industry. The results of our research reveal that, in Quebec, Canada, although women have been able to move into management positions in SME's, between 1990 and 2005, much still remains to be done to achieve equality in the areas of production and senior management. However, our research also provides some grounds for optimism, since younger and newer firms are in fact tending to hire women to fill their senior management positions.
