The following sentences are discussing how company reconstructing in Europe during the recession affected women's progress in the workplace( Does this make sense?) . But I am not sure what the underlined parts mean exactly. Can you help me?
In Europe a recent feature of corporate life in the recession has been the delayring of management stuctures. This has halted progress for women in as much as de-layering has taken place either where women are working or in layers they aspire to.
The managerial hierarchy no longer has the positions that women were holding or the ones they were hoping to get, making it harder for them to reach the top.
