The study, which is based on documentation and interviews with nine pedagogues from three work-teams in three preschools, aims to enhance our knowledge of preschool pedagogues’ constructions of and work to achieve gender equality among the children. It is argued that gender equality is mainly constructed as a preschool issue, with girls and boys treated either as individuals or as groups of opposites. In the latter case, in order for the genders to be equal, the girls’ group is directed to be stronger, braver and more independent and the boys’ group is encouraged to be more socially and linguistically competent. The study also found clear local variations.
