Abstract [en]

Historically, newspapers have played an important role in how feminism is portrayed. Media framing has the power to construct the representation of feministic movements, reproducing or challenging power structures in society. The metoo movement indicates profound structural problems in Sweden. This essay analyses how metoo was portrayed in two Swedish newspapers from the beginning of the movement and one year later, examining how the discourse has changed. The conclusions show a difference between the liberal and social democratic view and the discourse has shifted from women breaking the silence to focusing on the grey zones related to sexual harassment.
