To take another example, in 1980 the gap between the United Kingdom and France was 5 points in favor of the United Kingdom, but by 2000 it increased to 12 points. There has been a uniform increase in female employment rates but some countries did better than others. We investigate here whether the reasons for the differences in country experiences can be attributed to the institutional structure of their labor or product markets.
