The focus of Chapman and Benis is to show that specific regions in the United States play a major role in the gender pay gap. Data from the Women’s Law Center was used to prove that a person race in a specific region plays a part in the way the person is paid. This also helped them to test intersectionality in specific regions.Chu, Yu-Wei Luke and Susan Linz. “Do You Get What You Ask? The Gender Gap in Desired and Realised Wages.” International Journal of Manpower, vol. 38, no. 6, Sept. 2017, pp. 893-853.This was meant to find out if there was a specific trait in the gender gap that had an effect on people’s promotions. They collected data from six former socialist countries to show the differences between traits and moving up in a job. They found that there were many aspects that made up 7-8% of the gender pay gap.Clark, Cal, et al. “The Evolving Issue Base for the Gender Gap in the U.S.” Conference Papers — Southern Political Science Association, 2005 Annual Meeting, New Orleans, pp. 1-57. Overview of the central issues on which women and men differ in U.S. politics; Factors which make women relatively liberal on issues affecting the less fortunate in society and less likely than men to vote strictly in terms of their own economic self-interest; Several models of how the issue positions of women and men can shape the gender gap in voting; Reasons women are becoming an important serial constituency in U.S. politics.HEGEWISCH, ARIANE and EMMA WILLIAMS-BARON. “The Gender Wage Gap and Work-Family Supports: Women’s Choices or Policy Choices?.” St. Louis University Public Law Review, vol. 36, no. 1, Jan. 2017, pp. 5-17. States vary significantly by availability of work-life balance policies offered; only 16 states have at least one type of paid leave legislation, including paid sick leave, paid family leave, and temporary disability insurance at the state or local level. The five states that score highest on work-family supports-New York, California, the District of Columbia, New Jersey and Rhode Island-are among the states with the lowest gender wage gap.His and Hers: Higher Education, Firm Size and Gender Gaps in Management.” Conference Papers — American Sociological Association, Jan. 2013, pp. 1-39.

At No. 49, the U.S. ranks above average for gender equality worldwide, but behind countries such as Iceland, Rwanda and Nicaragua, which have all seen female heads of state within the last 50 years. Kleinjans, Kristin J., et al. “Occupational Prestige and the Gender Wage Gap.” Kyklos, vol. 70, no. 4, Nov. 2017, pp. 565-593.The reasons why occupational segregation persists despite the increases in women’s education and labor force participation, and why it results in a gender wage gap. The effect is economically significant: the gender differences in the weights placed on prestige and wages can explain up to one half of the gender wage gap resulting from occupational segregation, or about one fourth of the overall gender wage gap.Leuze, Kathrin and Susanne Strauß. “Why Do Occupations Dominated by Women Pay Less?

Whereas some are concerned that the gender revolution has stalled, others note the rapid increase in women’s representation in the ranks of management, and the reduction of wage inequality in larger and more active welfare states. Although these trends portend an attenuation of gender inequality, their effects on the gender pay gap in the U.S. are understudied due to data limitations, or the assumption that the U.S. pay is determined by market forces.Moore, Thomas S. “Occupational Career Change and Gender Wage Inequality.” Work & Occupations, vol. 45, no. 1, Feb. 2018, pp. 82-121.Nisic, Natascha. “Smaller Differences in Bigger Cities?
