In this paper, the gender wage inequalities are analyzed during intensive structural reforms and ownership transformation in Serbia in the early 2000s. The gender wage inequalities are examined along the wage distribution using the panel data from the survey on living standards measurement. The two-step estimator for panel data quantile regressions is applied as an identification strategy of the estimated coefficients. The preliminary results indicate a discriminatory pattern in the determination of women's wages, especially for younger and less educated women. This further implies the existence of sticky floor effects in the bottom quantiles of the wage distribution.
