Wage Gap, Yasemin Besen-Cassino – Yasemin’s new book, The Cost of Being a Girl will be published in December,  2017.  It forms the basis of her talk on the effects of working as a teenager on the gender wage gap.  Her research indicates, that when boys and girls are 12 and 13 they make the same amount of money.  We see the emergence of the first wage gap (which widens with age) by the time they are 14 and 15.  Her study show that these early inequalities have long-lasting effects; girls who work in retail as a teenagers, have much lower pay and have lower self-esteem when they are adults.
