Explaining the Gender Wage Gap: The Missing Aspects of Discrimination

About the eBook

This timely book offers an engaging contemporary analysis of research into the gender pay gap while also providing important nuanced observations. It illustrates the variant methodologies that have been employed by researchers who have attempted to elucidate this challenging topic.



Explaining the Gender Wage Gap examines often-neglected factors that highlight women’s lower earnings compared to men, such as risk aversion and the negotiation process. Chapters compare feminist and neoclassical discrimination theories whilst analysing models used to calculate the gender wage gap. They conclude that modern discrimination against women in the labour market may be less severe than public assumptions suggest.



Due to its investigative content, this intriguing book will be perfect for researchers and students exploring macroeconomics, the labour market and gender discrimination. It will also be beneficial for university professors lecturing in subjects such as economics, sociology and labour policy.
