Attention to gender equality is an important issue in the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. This book analyses the wage inequality and the gender pay gap in China from a temporal and spatial point of view, using the wage surveys available from 1995 to the present. Due to their rapid growth since the country's entry into a free market economy, the analysis carried out in this book seems crucial. Our study highlights that China is currently facing serious problems of gender pay discrimination. It also finds that the earnings of coastal provinces are much higher than those of interior provinces. In terms of wage inequality, figures in China are currently high. The spatial analysis of wages distribution shows that there are very different realities throughout the Chinese geography.
