Abstract: This paper studies how occupational feminization affects wages in the context of a developing country with high female labour force participation. Using the Labour Force Survey of Thailand from 1985 to 2017, we employ a pseudo panel approach considering the unobserved heterogeneity across individuals. The results indicate that the effect of occupational feminization on wages varies by gender and there is a growing wage penalty related to occupational feminization.
