Caste, female labor supply, and the gender wage gap in India: Boserup revisited
Economic Development and Cultural Change
A study explains the spatial variation in the gender gap in agricultural wages in India. The gender gap in wages is a persistent feature of labor markets despite laws mandating equal treatment of women at the workplace. In a cross-country context, observable differences in characteristics and endowments explain only a small portion of the wage gap. The geographical variation in the wage gap is commonly attributed to discrimination, as the unexplained component is the dominant one.
