Abstract in another language

There are considerable cross-country discrepancies in female board representation. We examine institutional factors associated with female board participation. Moreover, we analyze whether it has effects on investors’ perception of the firm. Board appointments are endogenous choices. We ex-plicitly address endogeneity by employing an Instrumental Variable approach on the country-level and Propensity Score Matching on the firm-level. Our results indicate that a societal climate of gen-der equality contributes to increased female board participation, and that boards without women do not result in worse (or better) stock performance. Hence, the gender gap is an ethical issue and should be closed because of basic fairness.
