The contribution of degree subject to the gender wage gap among graduates: A comparison of Britain, France and Germany. It is a fact that women earn less than men. However, there is little consensus as to why this should be the case. In this project we focus on university graduates and show that degree subject is relevant to the gender wage gap. We draw on person-level data from Britain, France and Germany, and observe wages and degree subject for a large number of graduates. By Stephen Machin and Patrick A. Puhani.
