What is the project about?

The Social and economic benefits of equal pay for women and men (Gender Pay Gap-E) project seeks to estimate the potential increase in women's wages and the income of women and families in Portugal by eliminating pay inequality between men and women. At the same time, it intends to assess the consequences of this in the reduction of poverty in the country. It also intends to analyze the effect of the pay differential in Portuguese territories. This should highlight the territorial contexts in which mitigation of pay discrepancies will be more beneficial to the economy.

It is a Small Grant Scheme #1 project - Studies on the economic impact of gender equality.


What will it achieve?

  • Determine the benefits of eliminating the gender pay gap in terms of income and protection against poverty.

  • Estimate the possible macroeconomic benefits that eliminating pay inequality between women and men would generate in GDP.

  • Develop an economic case for the elimination of the pay differential between men and women.
