Understanding the Gender Gap.
Goldin, Claudia
New Perspectives, v17 n4 p9-13 Fall 1985
Despite the great influx of women into the labor market, the gap between men's and women's wages has remained stable at 40 percent since 1950. Analysis of labor data suggests that this has occurred because women's educational attainment compared to men has declined. Recently, however, the wage gap has begun to narrow, and this will probably become a trend. (KH)
