Abstract

Since the middle of the 1970s, the variance of the global GDP per capita in the logarithm of PPP prices has been declining. It grew from 1960 to 1968. Later, the growth in intra-country inequality was more than countered by the convergence of income between nations. Two-thirds of the measures of inequality in the world are between nations, three tenths are between families within nations, and twenty percent are variations in gender-based educational outcomes between nations. By contrasting a few situations, this essay seeks to clarify the connection between economic growth and the gender wage gap. Comparing the size of the gender pay gap in nations with various levels of economic development using the USA and India as examples. Then, from three aspects, education, culture, and feminism, and specific policies for reducing the gender income gap, how the variance of economic development level leads to the difference in the gender income gap will be explained and evaluated.
