Abstract

 One of the main goals of government is to increase economic growth and public welfare. Therefore, recognition of useful factors that facilitate achievement of this goal plays a critical role in economic literature. This study focuses on the effect of gender inequality on the reduction of economic growth and investigates if gender inequality has a significant effect on economic development and growth? First, different aspects of gender inequality such as gender inequality in education, employment and wage are addressed. Then, the relationship between gender inequality and economic growth is tested. Our empirical findings are based on Panel-Data Regressions for OECD countries over 1990-2010. The results show that GDP per capita growth is negatively related to gender inequality in education and wage and has a nonlinear relationship with gender inequality in employment.
