Exhibited at Clamp Art in New York, the Jill Greenberg Glass Ceiling show creates a visual and social discussion. The images feature various dancers and athletes in underwater poses, creating a stunning and graceful series.

Known for her interest in feminist art, Greenberg once again takes on this subject for the Jill Greenberg Glass Ceiling exhibit. Each of the women in the photographs wear swim suits with matching heels. They look like they are trying to reach the top in order to get air; the view from which the images are shot make you feel like you are trapped along with these women.

Although today's society allows more women to break out of the traditional role designated to females, the struggle to be free continues and this is illustrated perfectly in the Jill Greenberg Glass Ceiling exhibit.
