The Gender Wage Gap by Occupation
by Ariane Hegewisch, Claudia Williams, Vanessa Harbin (April 2012)

Women’s median earnings are lower than men’s in nearly all occupations, whether they work in occupations predominantly done by women, occupations predominantly done by men, or occupations with a more even mix of men and women. This study was done for the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (http://www.iwpr.org/publications/pubs/the-gender-wage-gap-by-occupation-1)

CRTD.A || Seminar on Women’s informal work on 12th May 2012

They say we only measure what we value. Looking at the almost total absence of measure of women’s work in the informal and care economy in the Middle East, one can not help but realize the enormous bulk of work women do goes unnoticed, under valued and unrecognized. In this framework, the Collective for Research and Training on Development – Action is organizing a seminar on women’s informal work in Lebanon. If you’re interested in joining us this Saturday, 12th of May, from 9 to 14 at the YWCA of Lebanon offices in Ain el Mreisseh, kindly send an expression of interest, along with your organization and some information about yourself either to Paola Daher pdaher@crtda.org.lb or to Nathalie Chemaly nchemaly@crtda.org.lb. We hope to see you there! Image
