Exports, Gender Wage Gap, International Trade
This paper examines the impact of export growth on the real gender wage gap in the manufacturing industry in South Korea. Using industry-level panel data, I measure the effect of output growth, triggered by export growth, on both female employment and the real gender wage gap from 1994 to 2017. There is insufficient evidence that output or export growth contributed to lessening the real gender wage gap.
