Analysing data from a survey of modern-sector enterprises and their workers, the authors find no significant pay gap between women and men at any given skill level. But women tend to be concentrated in intermediate-level jobs: not only do they have greater difficulty finding modern-sector employment in the first place, but few of those who succeed make it to senior positions. The resulting occupational segregation, the authors conclude, calls for a pro-active government policy to increase women's labour force participation in the modern sector coupled with a focus on the societal factors that hamper women’s access to wage employment generally.
