Why Has The Gender Pay Gap Widened?

The Malaysian Gender Gap Index for 2022 was released by the Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM), and it revealed that women are getting about a third less in salary compared to men (for every RM100 earned by men, women receive RM66.67). This is a sharp decline from previous years: RM96.21 in 2021, and RM94.07 in 2020. We discuss what's behind this downward trend, and what policies are needed to address it.
