Remplacer les agricultrices : une histoire du congé de maternité en agriculture

Abstract : The history of maternity leave is that of a social policy that serves male interests through gendered public action tools. The forced recourse to agricultural replacement services, basically thought out for male farmers, was reinforced by a procedure that subordinates the use of that service to the farm manager’s decision. This resulted in the opportunistic capture by the farm manager of the workforce destined to replace his spouse. It contributed to exclude the latter from a service that was meant for her and that provided development resources to the replacement activity. So much so that the replacement services themselves then worked on improving this right of female farmers, in place of the female spokespersons, with the aim to consolidate an income that is vital for their professionalization.
