Nobel Prize in Economics awarded for gender gap research

Claudia Goldin, a Harvard University professor, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics for her pioneering work on understanding the gender gap in the labor market. This makes her the third woman to receive the prize. The announcement was made by Hans Ellegren, secretary-general of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm.

Goldin’s research doesn’t provide direct solutions but offers invaluable insights for policymakers to address this complex issue. It clarifies the origins of the gender gap, how it has evolved over time, and its variations in different stages of development, making it a crucial resource for addressing the problem effectively.

Upon receiving the award, Goldin expressed her surprise and happiness at being honored.

This Nobel Prize in Economics, formally known as the Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, is one of several Nobel awards given annually. Goldin’s achievement underscores the importance of her contributions to the field and the ongoing quest for gender equality.

The awards for various categories are presented in December in Oslo and Stockholm, accompanied by a cash prize of 11 million Swedish kronor (approximately $1 million), an 18-carat gold medal, and a diploma.
