The gender pay gap or gender wage gap is the average difference between the remuneration for men and women who are working. Women are generally paid less than men. There are two distinct numbers regarding the pay gap: The latter takes into account differences in hours worked, occupations chosen, education and job experience. For example, someone who takes time off e. Factors like this contribute to lower yearly earnings for women; while the pay gap has narrowed over time, a gender pay gap still exists, even when controlling for these external factors.
The reasons for lower pay include both individual choice and other innate and external factors. An example of a voluntary choice is choosing to work part-time when full-time employment is available. An example of an involuntary choice is working a low-skill job because of an inability to access higher education. An example of an external factor is discrimination.
The gender pay gap can be a problem from a public policy perspective even when the reason for the gap is entirely voluntary, because it reduces economic output and means that women are more likely to be dependent upon welfare payments , especially in old age. The bulk of this decline, was due to better labor market endowments of women i.
A study by the British CMI revealed that if pay growth continues for female executives at current rates, the gap between the earnings of female and male executives would not be closed until The gender pay gap , or gender wage gap is the median or mean average difference between the remuneration for all working men and women in the sample chosen.
National gender gaps are typically based on a sample from the entire working population of a country. For example, the gender pay gap by ethnicity,  within a single organization   or within organization to compare men and women on the same pay grade.
Comparing salary 'within rather than across' data sets helps to focus on a specific factor by controlling for other factors.
For example to eliminate the role of horizontal and vertical segregation in the gender pay gap compare salary by gender within; a specific job functions. Focusing on a single geography eliminates transnational differences in the job market and cost of living differences.
The reasons for lower pay include both individual choice and other innate, and external environmental factors. Both gender-specific factors, including gender differences in qualifications and discrimination, and overall wage structure, the rewards for skills and employment in particular sectors, importantly influence the gender pay gap.
The European Commission divides discrimination, as it impacts the EU wage gap, into several categories. While direct discrimination , when a woman is paid less than a man for the same job, exists, a more persistent problem is the undervaluing of women's work, with women being paid less for a job of equal value due to careers dominated by women being undervalued as a whole. Occupational segregation  or horizontal segregation  refers to inequality in pay associated with occupational earnings.
In Jacobs , Boyd et al. Macroeconomics found that the growing importance of the services sector has played a role in reducing the gender gap in pay and hours. Studies have shown that an increasing share of the gender pay gap over time is due to children. Motherhood can affect job choices as well.
In a traditional role, women are the ones who leave the workforce temporarily to take care of their children. As a result, women tend to take lower paying jobs because they are more likely to have more flexible timings compared to higher-paying jobs.
Since women are more likely to work fewer hours than men, they have less experience,  which will cause women to be behind in the work force. Another social factor, which is related to the aforementioned one, is the socialization of individuals to adopt specific gender roles. Additionally, in the eyes of employees, women in middle management are perceived to lack the courage, leadership, and drive that male managers appear to have, despite female middle managers achieving results on par with their male counterparts in terms of successful projects and achieving results for their employing companies.
Societal ideas of gender roles stem somewhat from media influences. Some research suggests that women are more likely to volunteer for tasks that are less likely to help earn promotions,and that they are more likely to be asked to volunteer and more likely to say yes to such requests.
The gender pay gap can be a problem from a public policy perspective because it reduces economic output and means that women are more likely to be dependent upon welfare payments , especially in old age. A report for the Australian Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs argued that in addition to fairness and equity there are also strong economic imperatives for addressing the gender wage gap.
The European Commission argues that the gender pay gap has far-reaching effects, especially in regard to pensions. Since women's earnings over a lifetime are on average As a result, elderly women are more likely to face poverty: Analysis conducted by the World Bank and available in the World Development Report on The Changing Nature of Work  connects earnings with skill accumulation, suggesting that women also accumulate less human capital skills and knowledge at work and through their careers.
The report shows that the payoffs to work experience is lower for women across the world as compared to men. For example, in Venezuela, for each additional year of work, men's wages increase on average by 2. In Denmark, by contrast, the payoffs to an additional year of work experience are the same for both men and women, at 5 percent on average. To address these differences, the report argues that governments could seek to remove limitations on the type or nature of work available to women and eliminate rules that limit women's property rights.
Parental leave , nursing breaks, and the possibility for flexible or part-time schedules are also identified as potential factors limiting women's learning in the workplace. In certain neoclassical models, discrimination by employers can be inefficient; excluding or limiting employment of a specific group will raise the wages of groups not facing discrimination.
Other firms could then gain a competitive advantage by hiring more workers from the group facing discrimination. As a result, in the long run discrimination would not occur. However, this view depends on strong assumptions about the labor market and the production functions of the firms attempting to discriminate.
In monopsony theory, wage discrimination can be explained by variations in labor mobility constraints between workers. Ransom and Oaxaca show that women appear to be less pay sensitive than men, and therefore employers take advantage of this and discriminate in their pay for women workers. The OECD points out that:. But many people are not even aware of their legal rights regarding discrimination in the workplace. And even if they are, proving a discrimination claim is intrinsically difficult for the claimant and legal action in courts is a costly process, whose benefits down the road are often small and uncertain.
All this discourages victims from lodging complaints. Moreover, although many OECD countries have put in place specialized anti-discrimination agencies, only in a few of them are these agencies effectively empowered, in the absence of individual complaints, to investigate companies, take actions against employers suspected of operating discriminatory practices, and sanction them when they find evidence of discrimination. In , the U. In light of these findings, GAO examined the enforcement of anti-discrimination laws in the private and public sectors.
GAO found that EEOC does not fully monitor gender pay enforcement efforts and that Labor does not monitor enforcement trends and performance outcomes regarding gender pay or other specific areas of discrimination. GAO came to the conclusion that "federal agencies should better monitor their performance in enforcing anti-discrimination laws.
In , the EEOC proposed a rule to submit more information on employee wages by gender to better monitor and combat gender discrimination. Civil society groups organize awareness campaigns that include activities such as the Equal Pay Day or the Equal pay for equal work to increase the public attention received by the gender pay gap.
For the same reason, various groups publish regular reports on the current state of gender pay differences. An example is the Global Gender Gap Report. The growth of the "gig" economy generates worker flexibility that, some have speculated, will favor women. Uber's algorithm does not distinguish the gender of its workers, but men get more income because they choose better when and in which areas to work, and cancel and accept trips in a more lucrative way.
Finally, men drive 2. This is a list of unadjusted pay gaps median earnings of full-time employees according to the OECD Moreover, the World Economic Forum provides data from that evaluates the gender pay gap in countries. Their evaluations take into account economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment , health and survival, and political empowerment scores.
In Australia, the gender pay gap is calculated on the average weekly ordinary time earnings for full-time employees published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The gender pay gap excludes part-time, casual earnings and overtime payments. Australia has a persistent gender pay gap. In fact, a "major part of the earnings gap is simply due to women managers being female". Watson also notes that despite the "characteristics of male and female managers being remarkably similar, their earnings are very different, suggesting that discrimination plays an important role in this outcome".
The second most important factor in explaining the pay gap was industrial segregation. The World Economic Forum, that created this report, takes into consideration economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, health and survival, and political empowerment.
It gives a score of 0. In , Brazil was one of the 6 countries that fully closed their gaps on both the Health and Survival and Educational Attainment subindexes. However, Brazil saw a setback in the progress towards gender parity this year, with its overall gender gap standing at its widest point since This is due to an enlargement of Brazil's Political Empowerment gender gap, which measures the ratio of females with seats in the parliament and at ministerial level, that is too large to be counterbalanced by a range of modest improvements across the country's Economic Participation and Opportunity subindex.
On average, combining paid work, household chores and caring for people, women work three hours a week more than men. In fact, the average women work Despite that, even with a higher educational level, women earn, on average, less than men do.
Although the difference between men's and women's earnings has declined in recent years, in women still received the equivalent of One of the factors that may explain this difference is that only Finally, according to IBGE, occupational segregation and the wage discrimination of women in the labor market also have an important role in the wage difference between men and women. As reported by the same survey, women who work earn It also cited that 6.
The survey also pointed out that In Brazil, under law, female workers may opt to take 6 months of maternity leave that must be fully paid by the employer. Many researches are concerned with this regulations. They question if these regulations may actually force workers into informal jobs, where they will have no rights at all.
Between men the difference is less radical: Women in Canada are more likely to seek employment opportunities which greatly contrast the ones of men. There still remains the question of why such a trend seems to resonate throughout the developed world. One identified societal factor that has been identified is the influx of women of color and immigrants into the work force.
These groups both tend to be subject to lower paying jobs from a statistical perspective.
As an added plus, the pictures are amazing! This book about the frienship between two children, one who has autism, one who doesn't, is touching and beautiful. To look at this book in the catalogue or online doesn't do it justice, but when you hold it in your hands you will find it is incredibly unique.
The black and white photos of Jamie and her friend, Will, will make you wish you had a friendship like that as a child because you can see the acceptance and caring they have for each other. The message is in equal measure as succesful in conveying what it is to be a friend as the pictures are. It explains characteristics of autism in a simple way that is easy for children and adults to understand. This is a book of inclusion, of acceptance, of loving each other for who you are as an individual.
As a parent of children with autism the beauty of this message makes me cry. I wish for friends like the 11 year old author, Jamie, for my children. I'm going to read this book to my children's classmates, but I won't loan it out. It's one of those keepers I want to be perfectly selfish with! However, I did purchase a second copy for the library. I'm already thinking ahead to Christmas, it would make a perfect gift, not only for the parents of childen with autism, and teachers, but for ALL children.
It is such a powerful message that both children and adults will find this book endearing. Jamie, the year-old narrator talks about being friends with Will, who has autism. These beautiful photographs will certainly move all readers regardless of age. Jamie accepts Will unconditionally; he does not have to jump through any hoops or pass any tests with her.
I like the way Jamie talks about the fun she and Will have together; this will hearken to mind Peralta's book about her brother, Evan. I just love the inclusion that is so much a part of the friendship of these two children; I just love the overall tone of this book.
As someone who has an invested interest in autism, the author deserves special kudos for portraying autism in a logical, clear and straightforward way that promotes tolerance. Hats off to this book! I am going to ask my library to order a copy of this book. I also feel educators will get a lot out of it as well. See all 11 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.

The workers initially recruited by the corporations were daughters of propertied New England farmers, typically between the ages of 15 and During the early period, women came to the mills of their own accord, for various reasons: While their wages were only half of what men were paid, many were able to attain economic independence for the first time, free from controlling fathers and husbands.
As a result, while factory life would soon come to be experienced as oppressive, it enabled these women to challenge gender stereotypes. As the nature of the new "factory system" became clear, however, many women joined the broader American labor movement , to protest the dramatic social changes of the Industrial Revolution.
While they decried the deteriorating factory conditions, worker unrest in the s was directed mainly against the loss of control over economic life.
This loss of control, which came with the dependence on the corporations for a wage, was experienced as an attack on their dignity and independence.
In , after a number of protests and strikes, many operatives came together to form the first union of working women in the United States, the Lowell Female Labor Reform Association.
The Association adopted a newspaper called the Voice of Industry , in which workers published sharp critiques of the new industrialism. The Voice stood in sharp contrast to other literary magazines published by female operatives, such as the Lowell Offering , which painted a sanguine picture of life in the mills.
Unlike the earlier Rhode Island System , where only carding and spinning were done in a factory while the weaving was often put out to neighboring farms to be done by hand, the Waltham mill was the first integrated mill in the United States, transforming raw cotton into cotton cloth in one building.
In , Francis C. Lowell 's business associates, looking to expand the Waltham textile operations, purchased land around the Pawtucket Falls on the Merrimack River in East Chelmsford. Incorporated as the Town of Lowell in , by , the textile mills employed almost 8, workers — mostly women between the ages of 15 and The "City of Spindles", as Lowell came to be known, quickly became the center of the Industrial Revolution in America.
New, large scale machinery, which had come to dominate the production of cloth by , was being rapidly developed in lockstep with the equally new ways of organizing workers for mass production. Together, these mutually reinforcing technological and social changes produced staggering increases: This tremendous growth translated directly into large profits for the textile corporations: Most corporations recorded similarly high profits during this period.
The social position of the factory girls had been degraded considerably in France and England. In her autobiography, Harriet Hanson Robinson who worked in the Lowell mills from — suggests that "It was to overcome this prejudice that such high wages had been offered to women that they might be induced to become mill girls, in spite of the opprobrium that still clung to this degrading occupation.
The Lowell System combined large-scale mechanization with an attempt to improve the stature of its female workforce and workers. A few girls who came with their mothers or older sisters were as young as ten years old, some were middle-aged, but the average age was about They were paired with more experienced women, who trained them in the ways of the factory. Conditions in the Lowell mills were severe by modern American standards.
Employees worked from 5: The noise of the machines was described by one worker as "something frightful and infernal", and although the rooms were hot, windows were often kept closed during the summer so that conditions for thread work remained optimal. The air, meanwhile, was filled with particles of thread and cloth. Charles Dickens , who visited in , remarked favorably on the conditions: The investors or factory owners built hundreds of boarding houses near the mills, where textile workers lived year-round.
A curfew of About 26 women lived in each boarding house, with up to six sharing a bedroom. Trips away from the boarding house were uncommon; the Lowell girls worked and ate together. However, half-days and short paid vacations were possible due to the nature of the piece-work; one girl would work the machines of another in addition to her own such that no wages would be lost. These close quarters fostered community as well as resentment.
Newcomers were mentored by older women in areas such as dress, speech, behavior, and the general ways of the community. Workers often recruited their friends or relatives to the factories, creating a familial atmosphere among many of the rank and file. The Handbook to Lowell noted that the company would "not employ anyone who is habitually absent from public worship on the Sabbath, or known to be guilty of immorality".
As for many young women, the allure of Lowell was in the opportunities afforded for further study and learning. Most had already completed some measure of formal education and were resolutely bent on self-improvement. Upon their arrival, they found a vibrant, lively working-class intellectual culture: Many even pursued literary composition. Defying factory rules, operatives would affix verses to their spinning frames, "to train their memories", and pin-up mathematical problems in the rooms where they worked.
