ABRAMO, Laís  y  ARMIJO, Marianela. Technological changes and women's work. Rev. Estud. Fem. [online]. 1997, vol.05, n.01, pp.31-66. ISSN 1806-9584.

This article analyzes the relationship between the processes of technological innovation and women's work in sixteen Chilean companies. Based on a survey carried out in 1993. It checks just how far these processes are opening up more and better job opportunities for women, or whether they are merely producing new types of on-the-job gender division that are even more segregatory. The results of this survey highlight the Importance of on-the-job gender segmentation to explain the situation of women in the labor market, and indicate the existence of major differences between industrial and service companies. In the former, the processes of technological innovation seem to have made no difference in terms of wider opportunities for women, while In the service sector, more favorable situations are noted In terms of the possibilities of access to jobs, promotion and training.
