MAUBRIGADES, Silvana. Participation and gender occupational segregation in the economic sectors of Latin America during the 20th century. Am. Lat. Hist. Econ [online]. 2020, vol.27, n.3, e1046.  Epub Sep 16, 2020. ISSN 2007-3496.

This article studies the women’s incorporation into the labor market in 15 Latin American countries during the 15th century. Also, this article analyzes the occupational segregation generated by the gender division of labor. In order to do this, the activity rates of women have been rebuilt at an aggregate level, same with the three activity sectors of the economy: agriculture, industry and services. The work allows to see women’s participation in the labor market has not been a simple cumulative process, but rather is linked to the differential demand for labor on different economic sectors in the periods analyzed.

Keywords : women; labor market; gender; labor segregation.
