Hiring discrimination in the French financial sector: an econometric analysis on field experiment data

Emmanuel Duguet () and Pascale Petit ()

Annals of Economics and Statistics, 2005, issue 78, 79-102

Abstract: We study the determinants of hiring gender discrimination in the French financial sector through a controlled experiment. We find that, on the one hand, the access differences to job interviews by women and men are primarily explained by the expectation of a maternity by young women and, on the other hand, we also find that some institutional mechanisms compensate this difference of treatment between genders so that there is no significant discrimination on average.
