Kvinnor, konstruktioner och Köpenhamnskolan: En feministisk analys av svenska regeringar

Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the construction of women, men, and gender equality in Swedish general and foreign politics, 1991-2015. Using a critical discourse analysis along with the Copenhagen School and securitization theory, this study finds a progression of feminist constructions in regards to women as time passes. This progression is gradual within general politics but more abrupt within foreign politics. Men are not found to be explicitly constructed, which aligns with theories of the male norm. Gender equality is constructed in a variety of ways depending on the speaker. The sex and gender of the Swedish Cabinet is not found to be of any real importance in regards to linguistic constructions. This study finds its raison d’être in questioning the construction of half our population by those who hold the political power. In doing so it helps fill a gap within the political science field, as studies of women and Swedish politics are few following the end of the Cold War.
