    Abstract

    Past researches found that there is correlation between education level, gender discrimination, work related experience and family are barriers to a woman’s career progression however, most of the studies done are based in the West. The neglect of the East in those previous studies did not provide sufficient evidence that countries in the East behave in the same manner. Hence, the purpose of this research paper is to examine the relationship between education, gender discrimination, work related experience and family as barrier to career progression specifically for Malaysian women. For this quantitative research, 200 people were selected and a questionnaire survey was conducted among them. The target respondents are working women in Penang, Malaysia. Based on data collected from our questionnaire survey, different SPSS analyses such as reliability, correlation and regression analyses are carried on to evaluate the relationship between education, gender discrimination, work related experience and family as a barrier to women’s career progression in Malaysia. As a result, gender discrimination has the greatest impact on Malaysian women career progression
