    Abstract: While the gender income gap has been examined extensively, the gender wealth gap has largely
    been ignored, especially for emerging markets such as Vietnam. The lack of serious analysis
    has caused great concern for practitioners and policymakers as public policy targeting the
    inequality in income and wealth across genders has not achieved their desired outcomes.
    Previous studies on gender in emerging markets have focused on income rather than wealth.
    This paper provides a comprehensive review and insightful policy recommendations on the
    important issue. Using data from Vietnam’s Household Living Standard Survey (VHLSS), the
    paper examines the gender wealth inequality for sole-head families and partner-head families in
    Vietnam in 2016, the latest year for which data are available. In addition, the paper extends the
    Machado-Mata decomposition technique based on the Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition, which
    was developed for quantile regressions, to examine the relationship across the distributions of
    wealth accumulation. The empirical findings from the paper indicate that, among partnered
    heads, female-head families experienced a larger gap of wealth accumulation. At the lower
    quantiles of wealth accumulation, the gender wealth gap is primarily associated with different
    characteristics for both sole and partner-head households. At the median and upper tails of the
    distribution of wealth accumulation, gender differences in endowments (such as education level
    and living area) are the main determinants in explaining the wealth gap. Given the empirical
    findings in the paper, policy implications emerge for the Vietnam Government to consider
    policies targeting a support for females as female-head families appear to be poorer than their
    male-head counterparts in terms of wealth
