    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    We consider trends over the last several decades in the economic status of women relative to men. Trends in the proportion of women employed outside the home, occupational sex segregation, the sex gap in earnings, and poverty are reviewed. A review of research that provides explanations for these gender inequalities is presented.
