dc.description.abstractThe paper empirically explores the international linkages between gender inequality andtrade flows of a sample of 92 developed and developing countries. The focus is oncomparative advantage in labour-intensive manufactured goods. The results indicate thatgender wage inequality is positively associated with comparative advantage in labourintensivegoods, that is, countries with a larger gender wage gap have higher exports ofthese goods. Also, gender inequality in labour force activity rates and educationalattainment rates are negatively linked with comparative advantage in labour-intensivecommodities.en_US
