Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper was to take a closer look at the ideas presented about women relating tothe debate about women's suffrage in Sweden before women got the vote, and to look at theunderlying views behind these ideas. The object of the study was the local newspaper UpsalaNya Tidning during the years 1890–1921, 1890 being the year the paper was founded and1921 the year that Swedish women were first eligible to vote according to the same criteria asSwedish men.The main discovery is that throughout this time period the idea is maintained that women as agroup are different from men; they are motherly, caring and more focused on social issues.This could be seen either as a disadvantage or as an advantage when considering thepossibility of giving them the right to vote, a disadvantage for example because of their lackof experience in the political sphere and the risk of women leaving their duties at home and anadvantage because there is an idea that women would be able to contribute to a better, morecaring and peaceful society as a whole.
