The Spanish Post Office, Correos, were pioneers in incorporating women workers.
Today 48 per cent of the workforce is female and are included in all levels of responsibility and levels.
In 1881 the first women to work for the post office was a telegram operator, one year later there were 40 women working. By 1911 there were 85 more feminine auxiliaries working.
When the Statute for Funcionaries amended the rights for women to work in Public Administration in 1918, Correos had already employed women on the workforce for 30 years.
