This study examines the effects of board gender diversity and investor protection on private information-based trading and its persistent form. The results generally show that board gender diversity plays a significant part in preventing stock trading activities based on private information as well as persistent private information-based trading. Investor protection is also found to be significant and more pronounced in mitigating private information-based trading, but its function is hindered by the persistence of private information-based trading. Overall, the findings suggest that, besides strengthening the investor protection, policymakers should also encourage the involvement of women on boards of directors.
