Chinese women who want to be paid closer to what men earn should get PhDs and move to big cities, according to a new study.
The study found that Chinese women this year made an average of nearly 4,500 yuan ($660) a month. That is 22.3% less than the male average.
Women with only a high school diploma made 33% less than men in the same roles. But women with PhDs—only 16.7% less.
“The importance of pursuing higher education in helping women change their fates is once again confirmed,” concluded researchers at recruitment company Boss Zhipin, whose iPhone app lets job seekers chat in real time with prospective bosses.
Moving to the big city also helps. Women in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen trailed their male counterparts by less than 20% on average, versus 31% in second- and third-tier cities, the survey found.
The survey, based on data from more than 360,000 jobs reported on Boss Zhipin’s platform, sheds new light on women’s pay in the world’s second-largest economy.
Crunching the data, Boss Zhipin researchers found differences in industry, region, education and work level accounted for 56% of the pay difference with men. The rest “can be understood as a result of the gender gap and discrimination,” the company said.(News from weibo)
