Gender wage gap exists in many countries, which is proven both by researchers and international organizations (OECD, International Labor Organization, World Bank, etc.) in their reports. Gender wage gap can be observed not only in the private sector but in the public sector too, including higher education. Is there discrimination against women on the labor market? Why do men get higher salaries? Is this a result of discrimination or are there other factors that can explain gender wage gap to a great degree?
