Abstract [sv]

I denna studie har vi undersökt unga kvinnors identitetsskapande i en mansdominerad snowboardkontext, samt deras copingstrategier. Sex semistrukturerade intervjuer analyserades med en deduktiv tematisk ansats. Analysens koder och teman grundas i första hand på göra-kön modellen (West & Zimmerman, 1987), tidigare studier som identifierat en maskulinitetsnorm inom snowboardvärlden samt tidigare beskrivna copingstrategier som kvinnor i minoritet använt sig av. Resultatet delades in i fyra teman: Den typiska snowboardåkaren, Sammanhållning och särhållning, Tjejer i backen samt Copingstrategier. Vår tolkning är att informanterna talade om sig själva som fysiskt och psykiskt avvikande från maskulinitetsnormen. Vi menar att informanternas identitetsskapande kan betraktas som motsägelsefullt; att som kvinna utföra handlingar som återskapar hennes identitet som snowboardåkare kan ses som motsatsen till att utföra handlingar som återskapar hennes identitet som kvinna.

Abstract [en]

We have investigated the identity formation of young women in a male dominated snowboard context, as well as their copingstrategies. Six semistructured interviews were analyzed using a deductive thematic approach. The analysis was based on West and Zimmerman’s (1987) model for doing gender, previous research which has identified a masculinity norm in the snowboarding community, and previously depicted coping strategies used by women in minority.The result was divided into four themes: The typical snowboarder, Togetherness and segregation, Girls on the hill, and Coping strategies. According to our understanding, the young women talked about themselves as deviant in relation to the masculinity norm, in aspects of both physical and psychological abilities. We suggest that the young women’s identity formation can be viewed as contradictory;as a woman to conduct actions which constructher identity as a snowboarder can be seen as the opposite of conducting actions that construct her identity as a woman.
