QUEIROLO, Graciela Amalia. Perfect Typists and Secretaries: The Process of Feminization of Administrative Jobs (Buenos Aires, 1910-1950). hist.crit. [online]. 2015, n.57, pp.117-136. ISSN 0121-1617.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7440/histcrit57.2015.07.

This article analyzes the process of feminization that affected the administrative sector in Buenos Aires between 1910 and 1950. This process was characterized by an increase in the number of women working as typists and secretaries. On the one hand, it discusses the interpretations that situated the process in a later period and, on the other hand, it defines the social conceptions that attributed skills inherent to women to these occupations, conjugated with special technical training. It thus demonstrates that administrative jobs received certain quotas of social prestige with respect to other female occupations.
