Abstract
We analyze experimental data obtained from an ultimatum game framed as a situation of employee-employer negotiation over salaries. Parallel to this, we elicit subjects’ risk attitudes. In the existing literature, it has often been conjectured that gender di_erences in strategicenvironments are partly due to di_erences in risky decision making. Our evidence suggests that both gender and risk-related e_ects co-exist in ultimatum bargaining. However, di_erences in risk attitudes cannot explain gender e_ects in ultimatum bargaining.

Keywords: Gender differences; ultimatum game; risk attitudes
