Abstract: The concept of gender is responsible for questioning what it means to be a woman and a man in different historical contexts. The concept of sexual division of labor makes it possible to examine how this division creates a female labor force, considered as cheap manpower for certain types of tasks, and how it produces unequal, hierarchical and asymmetrical exploitation and oppression relations. Accordingly, we propose a link between the concepts of gender and sexual division of labor to understand the use of time in teaching. Based on qualitative empirical research, developed with male and female teachers from a school in São Paulo, between 2006 and 2007, we emphasized the gendered nature of the teaching activity, but we question the dichotomy between greater economic working time for men and greater working time for social reproduction for women, found in the analysis of other professions.
