Most of the research on women and agriculture in the developed countries has focused on the family farm and farm wives, and the study of female salaried workers has been ignored. This paper suggests that most of the issues that proved relevant for the understanding of women's role in the family farm (sexual division of labour, domestic work as invisible work, etc.) are also the key issues for analysing the female day labourer. The main purpose of this paper is to contribute to the clarification of such issues in the context of Andalusian agriculture where female labourers are quite numerous, and where the policies on subside for agrarian unemployment are crucial in understanding the basis of the economy of many rural households. -English summary
