Today: Friday March 27, 2015 – This week’s podcast covers an event at The New School which gave a one-day workshop on gendered labor market segregation in developing countries. This is part of a joint research project between the New School for Social Research and the University of Gottingen.
Today, we wrap up the week with a concluding segment that goes over the results, importance and future of the topic. We look at how inequality arises not only in terms of salary dollars but also in subordinate job segregation and social devaluing of female occupations. So how is this important for gender equality as well as the economy and where do we go from here?
