Women have occupied a vital position in agricultural production of Argentina, especially in family business. The roles and jobs are reinforced through media, government agencies (its representatives and publications), agricultural corporations and also through voice to voice of family and social traditions. Each region assigns some specificity to the jobs and positions symbolically assigned to women in a way that creates for those women identity features marked by agricultural production. This book examines through history why the job of women in argentinian farms is not so visible, and fromh the experiences of the main characters it is possible to discover the hidden voices of those who lived and worked in the northern and pampean rural areas in the mid 20th century.
