MPIA-11622 Trade Openness and Gender in Uruguay. A CGE Analysis.

Abstract

In Uruguay, female employment is concentrated in few activities. Changes in specialization and trade might therefore have a strong impact on female/male employment and wages. The aim of this proposal is to assess the differentiated impact by gender of trade openness on employment, wages and poverty. The gender dimension will be introduced in the CGE model developed in Terra et al (2005). Labor will be not only disaggregated by skills, but also by gender. Additionally, labor supply will be endogenous, considering the decision about time allocation between market activities, unpaid activities and leisure activities. In order to analyze the effects on poverty and inequality, microsimulations will be run, using the gender gaps in wage and employment obtained with the CGE model.
