Abstract

This paper discusses the implication of recent results on the structure of gender wage gaps in transition economies for the literature on gender segregation. Differences in employment rates of low-wage women driven by initial transition policies may be responsible for different wage penalties to predominantly female occupations. New evidence presented here also suggests that the introduction of Western-type anti-discrimination policies has had little immediate effect on the structure of female-male wage differences.
