The aim of this article is to answer the question of whether women in Uruguay face a glass ceiling. To do this, the conditional gender wage gap is evaluated along the empirical wage distribution function. Separated quantile regression for women and men are estimated. We evaluate the counterfactual gap between the observed male wage and what this would be if men?s characteristics were remunerated in accordance with women?s wage distribution. After this the counterfactual gap is also evaluated for women?s wages. The results suggest that women?s wages are a¤ected by a glass ceiling.
