The gender gap in competitiveness: women shy away from competing with others, but not from competing with themselves

Women are less willing than men to compete against others. This gender gap can partially explain the differences between women’s and men’s education and career choices, and the labor market disparities that result. The experiments presented here show that even though women are less willing than men to compete against others, they are just as willing as men are to take on the challenge of ...

Frauen messen sich weniger an anderen als Männer, aber kein Unterschied beim Wettbewerb gegen sich selbst

Frauen sind im Durchschnitt seltener bereit, in Wettbewerb mit anderen Personen zu treten als Männer.

Many countries have introduced policies that aim at changing gender stereotypes, for example fathers’ quota in parental leave schemes. In this paper, we analyze whether the introduction of the fathers’ quota in Germany in 2007, that caused a sharp increase in the take-up of ...
