Abstract: This study examines empirically the influence of gender inequality on the economic growth across Arab region. The data sample includes 19 countries for the period from 1990 to 2014. The model is estimated using Pooled OLS and Fixed Effect techniques. Interestingly, findings show that there is no evidence of both gender inequality in education and gender inequality in labor force to hinder economic growth across Arab region. In fact, the findings of this study show that the main factors driving the economic growth across the Arab region are capital accumulation as well as population growth.
