Abstract

The postal, telegraphic and telephonic sector was an important area for development of the communications and as a servic"e provider for the wholder for the whole economy, and played a crucial social and political role, making easier relations of institutions each other, and of the citizens with the institutions, especially where the postal and telegraphic service was a State monopoly. Like employees in central offices, as well as in the direction of local ones, women showed certain qualities that men appeared lacking: lower claims in income and career, more grace and discretion, lower interest in the local quarrels.The gender perspective proved to be especially productive for the examination of labor relations in this area.Our researches pointed out the importance of these workers in the feminisation of clerical work: a job no relate to the maternal function, and, in the little cities, a social presence unusually for women. Our contribution wishes to emphasize the battle of the Italian postal telegraphic and telephonic female workers in the feminist ranks and in trade union movement, for the acknowledgement of their rights as workers, civil servants and women. The same battle carried on their companions in other nations. Between the end of the 800th to the between the two worlds wars, international female staff, in the ranks of IPTT, fought mainly to stability and freedom of occupation-- , for equality in rules and wages, for the right to career; and for better conditions of work and maternity protection.
