The glass ceiling (windshield) in the auto theft industry: not an Equal Opportunity Employer

Car thievery is an industry like any other, with mentors ("technical advisors") who train new thiefs in the art of hot-wiring. And, like so many industries, women are not given equal access to the career ladder. Researchers have found that women are equally adept at actually stealing the cars, but their careers are stunted by a lack of access to social networks of criminals and chop shops. Without a lucrative way to dispose of the merchandise, the car theft business doesn't provide an acceptable ROI.

  1. Maybe the women need to start their own chop-shop.
