Abstract

We examine how females have fared relative to males in the rapidly growing Korean economy. Similar to the US, the average wage of Korean females has increased relative to males. Unlike the US, the increase appears to be due mainly to improvements in productive characteristics such as schooling and experience and not reductions in wage discrimination.
