As women's education levels have risen dramatically, human capital is no longer a reasonable explanation for today's “gender gap in the labor market,” so researchers have been looking for more potential reasons. Gender equality is necessary for social progress; attracting and releasing more female workers into economic production will bring substantial economic dividends. This article uses the World Bank and the National Bureau of Statistics and finds secondary data. At the same time, women's education levels have increased overall, the employment and wage gap between men and women has decreased. That increased education levels positively affect gender equality in the workplace. However, at the same time, women's education levels are still insufficient, and inequality between men and women in the workplace is still significant. Government policy on promoting female education and same maternity leave for men and women, companies’ reform on the system of employment and promotion, and changes on corporate culture could improve the current situation of women can’t get enough educational resources during the study phase, suffer from hiring and promoting discrimination and wage inequality in the workplace.
