MARCONDES, Willer Baumgartem; ROTENBERG, Lúcia; PORTELA, Luciana Fernandes  and  MORENO, Claudia Roberta de Castro. O peso do trabalho "leve" feminino à saúde . São Paulo Perspec. [online]. 2003, vol.17, n.2, pp.91-101. ISSN 1806-9452.

Based on an empirical study of night-shift workers, this article discusses the gender division of labor, professional qualifications, domestic work, "heavy" and "light" work, and the possible repercussions on the health of men and women. The terms "gender" and "labor" are mutually revealing, unveiling aspects in which production and reproduction are tied into one another, suggesting a deconstruction of stereotypes.

Keywords : gender division of labor; health; night shift.
