dc.description.abstractThis paper explores secular changes in women?s pay relative to men?s pay. It shows how thehuman capital model predicts a smaller gender wage gap as male-female lifetime workexpectations become more similar. The model explains why relative female wages rosealmost unabated from 1890 to the early-1990s in the United States (with the exception ofabout 1940-1980), and why this relative wage growth tapered off since 1993. In addition tothe US, the paper presents evidence from nine other countries using data gleaned from theLuxembourg Income Study (LIS).en_US
