The Gender Gap in Top Corporate Jobs.
Bertrand, Marianne; Hallock, Kevin F.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v55 n1 p3-21 Oct 2001
Women, about 2% of a sample of top executives, earned about 45% less than men. Three-fourths of the gap may be explained by women managing smaller companies and being less likely to be chair/president. Gender segregation or unequal promotion may play a role. Between 1992-1997, women nearly tripled their representation among top executives, mostly in larger corporations. (Author/SK)
