Abstract

This is one of the first papers to document the existence of a gender reservation wage gap in developing countries. We find a 25% gender reservation wage gap, a gap that is much larger than current estimates for developed countries. Assets play the largest role in closing this gap, whereas adult height widens the gap among the poor.
