About the Book

This new book provides an appraisal of gender pay equality, assessing advances and barriers to further progress through a selection of national policy, institutional and labour market contexts.

National experts on gender pay equality provide case studies on the UK, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, China and Singapore. Offering fascinating cross-national comparisons on gender pay equality, this book:

  • provides an up-to-date and alternative assessment of progress towards gender pay equality
  • seeks to deepen understanding of the barriers to advancement and the strategies most likely to enable gains into the future
  • broadens understandings of how gender pay inequality is shaped in different economic and cultural, as well as institutional and labour market, contexts.

Equal Pay for Women will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of gender studies, public policy and employment law.
