Abstract

The expansion of services and the dissemination of information technologies and communication are identified as important factors that can improve employment opportunities for women, reducing labor by gender differences. The objective of the study is to determine the extent to which services and especially those most closely linked with the knowledge and ICTs such as Knowledge Intensive Services (KIS) are changing some of the basics of labor gender differences. To do it: a), we first measure and characterize employment related with Services and KIS; b), to compare thenn existing wage differentials in these activities with the observed in the whole economy; c), and conclude whether the Services and / or KIS introduce some significant improvement.
