  • Abstract

    The debate on the effect of gender inequality on growth was highly ambiguous. Some studies have shown a positive association between the two, while the other is presented perfectly opposite view. Using the most recent data and investigating an extended time period (1995– 2012), we update the results of previous studies on education gaps on growth and extend the analysis to employment gaps using panel data. We find that gender gaps in education and employment considerably reduce economic growth.
