When Do Wage Disparities Indicate Discrimination? Fairness Perceptions Depend on Group Membership
Across three studies, we find that men and women evaluate gender inequality arising from explicitly unbiased processes very differently.

Moreover, this drives differential perceptions of institutional fairness.
