Abstract

The paper tracks the effort to standardize measurement of a gender inequality resulting in the creation of an innovative Gender Inequality Index (GII). The aim of this paper is to identify the shortcomings and limitations of the GII and to open the discussion about the necessity of including other important dimensions to the existing measure, especially the wage inequality between men and women. To detect wage discrimination, the authors tries to implement the Gender pay gap indicator into the GII calculation.
