Ausführliche Beschreibung:To do so I will start from some of the issues raised in the administrative texts written in Sumerian language, which deal with work force and with the organisation of work.

On the other hand, I concentrate on one of the previous issues, i.e. the gender-based division of work, to present some thoughts on its adequacy as usual starting point to approach the role of women at work in the past. In this direction I will reflect on its suitability while considering the usefulness of the idea of "intersectionality" to approach the primary sources and to reconstruct the world of women at work in ancient
