Exploring current literature that assess relations between cognitive ability and height, obesity, and its productivity-employability effect on women's labor market we appraised the Argentine case to find these social-physical relations which involve anthropometric and traditional economic variables. Adapting an anthropometric Mincer approach by using probabilistic and censured econometric models which were developed for it. Subtle evidence of discriminative behavior on obese women, and a good performance of height variable as unobserved cognitive ability approximate measure to explain feminine productivity has been found.
