In this paper we evaluate gender discrimination by studying the entire distribution of the individual unexplained wage gap. In particular, this innovation makes it possible to estimate the distribution of the unexplained wage gap conditional on the distribution of any characteristic and to evaluate more precisely the existence of group and individual discrimination. Our analysis suggests that discrimination is not evenly distributed among women, both in relation to their estimated wage and their human capital characteristics. While our work is based on a very local context, the richness of the data and the methodological innovation give the results a wider application.
