The article retraces some important "lessons" that historically have highlighted the importance of gender differences in the ergonomic design and / or in the improvement of the work environment: the ergonomics of Maria Montessori, which, in the education of children goes beyond gender difference; the strike of the piscinine (girls who worked in the tailoring industry) aimed at reducing the weight of clothes carrying boxes; researcher Karen Messing who, with her studies, helped to denounce the invisibility of women's labour and to debunk its clichés; Madeleine Estryn-Behar who investigated the inequities related to the right to health, also confirmed by the World Health Organization (2008). The ergonomics applied to the workplaces has brought to light gender differences and has focused on inequalities; however, there are still many issues to take on in order to respond to health needs adequately.
Keywords: Gender ergonomics; work environment; health; immigrant women.
