    Este artículo tiene como objetivo medir el impacto de las diferencias salariales por género en el Área Metropolitana de Medellín en el período 2002-2006, teniendo en cuenta variables como la experiencia, el nivel educativo, el sector económico y el nivel socioeconómico, a través de la formulación de un modelo de regresiones por cuantiles. Se encuentra evidencia de que existe una brecha salarial entre hombres y mujeres, a favor de los hombres. Se demuestra que el impacto de la educación en el logaritmo del salario por hora es mayor que el impacto de la experiencia, y que las mujeres presentan mayores niveles de educación que los hombres, pero reciben menor pago, lo que podría significar discriminación por género en el mercado laboral de Medellín para el período de análisis.
