Online Hiring is Biased in Favor of Women

Below are combined screenshots from pgs 16, 20, 26 in the paper titled Hiring Preferences in Online Labor Markets: Evidence of a Female Hiring Bias 

In the paper they examine the female hiring bias in online hiring. A quick glance of the notes demonstrates that female applicants have a significant advantage especially if they attach a photo to their application. Online hiring is the future so as it becomes the norm in hiring practices you can expect the employment rate for women to increase right along with it.
