This paper presents a part of a wide investigation. The main object was to propose Political Actions to the policymakers to favor the labor insertion of women in professions where women are under-represented. This paper is an attempt to study in depth the employers' behavior to find their degree of responsibility and influence in the sex segregation in the labor market. A qualitative study was made. The results show us that the sensibility to the issue is raised. Entrepreneurs believe that the situation is not fair, but they do not feel it is their responsibility to make the changes. They ask a higher participation from the Government and from Society in general, and at the same time they recognize that they do not know the political movements such as affirmative action.
