ABSTRACT. The objective of this paper is to emphasize the causes and consequences of female labor force participation, the impact of female managerial representation on gender integration, and the gender specific changes in wage discrimination. My analysis complements the growing literature on organizational and establishment-level schemes and practices as crucial drivers of work-based gender inequality, gender-driven labor market outcomes, and the manner in which the relative wages of men and women differ within labor market spheres. The overall results provide strong evidence for the effect of global trade on the gender pay gap and female labor force participation, the gender dissimilarities in labor market outcomes, and the function of gender in the labor market. The literature on the relationship between the occurrence of female organizational leaders and diminished inequality, the determinants of the gender wage gap, and the gender disparities in the rise in wage discrimination is relevant to this discussion. pp. 262–268

Keywords: female labor force; gender wage gap
