Abstract

We study gender differences in bilateral bargaining based on an artefactual field experiment in rural Uganda through variation in gender composition of the bargaining pairs as well as in disclosure of identities. We find that disagreement is common independently of the disclosure condition, but that it is less frequent among female-only pairs. Further, when paired with a man who is informed about their identity, women tend to demand less than men in the same situation. Moreover, the influence of beliefs on demands is stronger for men than for women, and this difference is larger under anonymity than when identities are disclosed. Taken together, these results identify important mechanisms that induce gender inequality in resource access.
