Women's work, women's lives : a comparative economic perspective by Francine D Blau( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This chapter provides a broad overview of women 's economic status in all parts of the world, with special emphasis on their position relative to men. Large differences are found among countries and regions in the size of the gender gap with respect to such measures as labor force participation, occupational segregation, earnings, education, and to a some what lesser degree the amount of time spent on housework. Two generalizations, however, hold. Women have not achieved full equality anywhere, but particularly in the advanced industrialized countries for which data on the relevant variables are more readily available, there is evidence of a reduction of gender differences in economic roles and outcomes
Sex discrimination by sex : voting in a professional society by Alan E Dillingham( Book )

10 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic theories of discrimination are usually based on tastes. The huge body of empirical studies, however, considers the discriminatory outcomes that are the reduced-form results of interactions between tastes and opportunity sets. None examines tastes for discrimination directly, or considers people's willingness to trade off other characteristics to indulge their tastes. We study these trade-offs using a set of data on votes for officers in a professional association. The evidence shows that female voters are much more likely to vote for female than for male candidates, and that other affinities between them and a candidate have little effect on their choices. Male voters are slightly more likely to vote for female candidates, but their choices are easily altered by other affinities to a candidate
Career plans and expectations of young women and men : the earnings gap and labor force participation by Francine D Blau( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using detailed information on the career plans and earnings expectations of college business school seniors, we test the hypothesis that women who plan to work intermittently choose jobs with lower rewards to work experience in return for lower penalties for labor force interruptions. We find that while men and women expect similar starting salaries, women anticipate considerably lower earnings in subsequent years, even under the assumption of continuous employment after leaving school. While it is also true that women in the sample plan to work fewer years than men, these differences do not explain the observed gender differences in expected earnings profiles. We also find no evidence that gender differences in expected earnings have any effect on the number of years these women plan to be in the labor market

Labor force participation patterns and earnings of women clerical workers by Marianne A Ferber( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few women, even today, remain in the labor market full time all their adult lives, and few give as high a priority to market work as men generally do. This paper investigates the impact of various patterns of labor force participation on the wage rate of female clerical workers, the single largest occupational category for women. It was found that while the effect of such variables as years of experience, years of hometime, percent time worked, and education is relatively modest, number of years with current employer has a large positive effect, and having been a service or blue collar worker has a significant negative effect. Over-all we conclude that a young woman who considers only the immediate effect of her labor market decisions during the early stages of her life cycle seriously underestimates their total long run results."
