    The Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the way we live, with many of us enduring prolonged periods in isolation while others have to work against the clock on the frontline. Not easy as it may sound, we all need to adapt to get through this tough time. Although the pandemic has brought us unexpected and difficulties, every cloud has a silver lining. We all hope that the pandemic will soon be over and we will get back to our “normal life”, but are our lives still the same as before?

    Gender Wage Gap
    A piece of news posted from Arirang News (South Korea) last Sept-2021 brought to public attention a report from the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family with a surprisingly high gender pay gap in which they show men are paid 1.6 times more than women at South Korea’s publicly traded companies. Other data from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) and Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) shows currently, Australia’s national gender pay gap is 14.2%; as of May 2021, women’s average weekly ordinary full-time earnings across all industries and occupations was $1,575 compared to men’s average weekly ordinary full-time earnings of $1,837. This means that on average, women earn $261.50 less than men.
    So, what does the 'gender pay gap' mean?
    The gender wage gap refers to the difference in earnings between women and men. Directly comparing international gender pay gaps is problematic due to differences in sources, definitions and methods used to calculate the gender pay gap in different countries; however, it is clear that gender pay gaps in favour of men are a common feature of economies worldwide.
    What drives the gender pay gap?
    The gap between women’s and men’s earnings is a symptom of a broader cultural problem in workplaces. It reflects the historic and systemic undervaluing of women’s workplace contributions. We can mention some key factors like the undervaluation of 'female' jobs; Barriers to higher-paid male-dominated industries; Women’s disproportionate share of unpaid caring and domestic work; etc.
    What to do about the gender wage gap?
    Efforts to close the wage gap must address the varying drivers of it as well as the multitude of biases that hold women—particularly women of colour, LGBTQ women, and women with other diverse identities—and their families back. This is an issue of economic security and equality—and women and their families cannot afford to wait for either.
    Let’s come to Advance and have a fruitful discussion on these social findings.
     
    Questions to ponder:
    1. What’s your observation about this gap in Vietnam? Are there any differences among developed and developing countries regarding this matter?
    2. How do you feel about this gender pay gap? And, speaking of men and women’s perspectives, how do you see this unfairness?
    3. What are the reasons behind the gender wage gap?
    4. Any solutions you would like to propose for this matter?
