Religion and Education Gender Gap: Are Muslims Different?
Hajj, Mandana; Panizza, Ugo
Economics of Education Review, v28 n3 p337-344 Jun 2009
This paper uses individual-level data and a differences-in-differences estimation strategy to test whether the education gender gap of Muslims is different from that of Christians. In particular, the paper uses data for young Lebanese and shows that, other things equal, girls (both Muslim and Christian) tend to receive more education than boys and that there is no difference between the education gender gap of Muslims and Christians. Therefore, the paper finds no support for the hypothesis that Muslims discriminate against female education. (Contains 3 tables.)
