    The aim of this paper is to evaluate the existence of gender wage discrimination in Argentina. The methodology used is the one proposed by Gradín, Del Río y Cantó (2006), which emphasizes the importance of considering the individual wage gap when analyzing discrimination and follows an analogy with the poverty and deprivation literature. Two alternative estimation methods are used (OLS and QR), and the hypotheses of “glass ceiling” and “sticky floor” are evaluated on the groups with higher and lower education respectively. El siguiente trabajo intenta evaluar el fenómeno de la discriminación salarial por género en la Argentina. Se utiliza la metodología presentada en Gradín, Del Río y Cantó (2006), que enfatiza la dimensión individual del fenómeno de discriminación y propone una metodología de análisis haciendo una analogía con la literatura de pobreza. Se utilizan dos métodos de estimación alternativos para la ecuación de salarios (MCO y QR) y se evalúa la presencia de los fenómenos conocidos como “Glass ceiling” y “Sticky floor” en los grupos de individuos calificados y no calificados respectivamente.
