Gender Reservation Wage Gap in Developing Countries

Bilal Muhammad Khan and Muhammad Farhan Majid

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This is one of the first papers to document the existence of a gender reservation wage gap in developing countries. We find a 25% gender reservation wage gap, a gap that is much larger than current estimates for developed countries. Assets play the largest role in closing this gap, whereas adult height widens the gap among the poor.
