Gender equality is not only the goal, but also a big challenge in the development of nations, especially the developing countries. Vietnam has gained some achievements in the gender equality, but the gender gaps in economic fields still exist and negatively impact on the socio-economic development. This study used the qualitative research methods and found the root causes of the gender gap in economic fields that is the wrong bias about the gender in society and due to the lack of effective policies. Basing on the analysis results of the situation, the study proposed some policy implications directly impacting on the situation of the gender inequity in economic fields, in order to narrow the gender gap in this field of Vietnam.
