Introduction: this article aims to show the importance of mainstreaming gender perspective in social work research on social work interventions with people with intellectual disabilities in residential and day care centers in Andalusia. Method and Materials:In-depth interviews with professionals in Andalusian centres were conducted using an interpretive conceptual framework of ascending logic of Grounded Theory (constant comparative method and development of analytical imagery).. A theoretical sampling saturation was performed anda case with nineteen informants was settled for contextual heterogeneity and relevance in communicative interaction,. Results: as a result it should be noted that social work takes place in a women´s context that does not include any gender perspective. Occupational segregation is explained by the transfer of patriarchal care models for intervention. Discrimination against women with intellectual disabilities was found in the distribution of tasks in day care centers and the attitudes of families that hinder the participation of women with intellectual disabilities in different environments. The results show that methodological omission of the gender perspective in research involves the risk of making discrimination invisible in intervention.
