The spillover effects of gender quotas on dishonesty

Valeria Maggian and Natalia Montinari ()

Working Papers from HAL

Abstract: We experimentally test for spillover effects of gender quotas on subsequent unrelated, unethical behavior. We find that introducing quotas has no systematic effect on unethical behavior for both genders. High performing, competitive females are more likely to display unethical behavior than their male counterparts.
