This paper attempts to address the problem of women's wage and occupational discrimination by looking at the factors that are not always analyzed in a regular market situation. The basis of analysis is through the econometric model of an Ordinary Least Squares regression of the log wage against a set of independent variables, which results in a more accurate portrayal of women's pay as a result of their efforts in the labor market. This also includes a thorough look at the intersection of gender within the framework of industry and occupation to see how they change the wage gap.
