Do Employers Discriminate by Gender? A Field Experiment in Female-Dominated Occupations
by Alison L. Booth, Andrew Leigh
(January 2010)
published in: Economics Letters, 2010, 107 (2), 236-238

Abstract:
We test for gender discrimination by sending fake CVs to apply for entry-level jobs. Female candidates are more likely to receive a callback, with the difference being largest in occupations that are more female-dominated.
