Abstract

LEITE, Marcia de Paula  and  GUIMARAES, Pilar Carvalho. Everything changes, everything remains. Consequences of the use of information technologies on women's work. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2015, n.44, pp.333-366. ISSN 0104-8333.  https://doi.org/10.1590/1809-4449201500440333.

This paper discusses the social implications of new Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) on labor, from the perspective of gender. As part of a survey carried out by CEPAL in three Latin American countries, including Brazil, it is based on a case study conducted in a factory of the electronics sector in the Metropolitan Region of Campinas. The study's findings indicate that, as pointed out in previous analyses, female labor has not improved with the introduction of new technologies.

Keywords : Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs); Electronics Sector; Sexual Division of Labor.
