Abstract: This paper analyses the differences in job satisfaction between men and women in the public and private sectors. Firstly, differences in satisfaction are analysed globally, and subsequently according to
different domains of satisfaction: wage, social assistance, training, job stability, work hours, fexibility,
holidays, organization at work, independence, performance assessment by hierarchical superiors, monotony and stress. Results show that women are more satisfed than men in aggregate terms, although
their higher satisfaction is justifed exclusively by public sector workers. Once within the public sector,
the differences between men and women do not disappear. Women in the public sector are still more
satisfed than men are.
