Professor Blau’s talk addresses the following questions regarding gender earnings gap: What are the trends in the gender pay gap in the United States and what are the fundamental explanations for the gender pay gap? Can these explanations help us to understand why it has decreased? Also, has discrimination against women declined? And are there broad market-wide trends that help to explain the decrease in the gender pay gap? Specifically, have trends in the demand for labor favored women relative to men? Finally, why is the gender pay gap in the United States larger than in many other economically advanced countries?
