Abstract: Unlike previous studies on gender gaps, this research analyzes wage gaps within the Peruvian labor market considering its segmentation between informal and formal and a sub-segmentation between public and private, generating 4 segments in the labor market. For this purpose, we apply decomposition methods for mean wage and along the wage distribution. The main findings are the following: first, in the informal segment there are wide wage gaps in the upper and lower ends of the distribution against women with a greater emphasis on the informal public segment, and in the informal private segment we found a negative wage gap against women but constant along the distribution. Then, in the formal segment (public and private) the largest gaps were found at the upper end of the distribution, a result that is in line with the "glass ceiling" effect found by the international literature.
