International mechanisms to revalue women's work: research

The report reviews different approaches to redress the undervaluation of women’s work and assesses their applicability to the Scottish employment context. The report finds that undervaluation of women’s work is a driver of the gender pay gap and makes recommendations to alleviate this disparity.


We would like to thank all those who spoke to us in the course of this report and whose expertise in equal pay informs the findings. In particular we are grateful to Sue Hastings for generously giving her time to advise on Job Evaluation. We also extend thanks to the Project Steering Group for their guidance and feedback and to Gillian Achurch at the Scottish Government for coordinating the project.
