    Paradoxes of gender in elderly care: the case of men as care workers in Sweden2012Inngår i: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 30, nr 3, s. 166-181Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish public system of elderly care is highly relevant for studying gender relations, specifically when male care workers are more frequently seen within this female-coded field of practice. In this article, qualitative interviews with male and female care workers, elderly women and men, and care managers are analysed to discover how they talk about care work and how gender is expressed, both implicitly and explicitly, in the materialization of care. By illuminating the dynamics of how gender is constructed and negotiated in the intersection of the different actors' perspectives, the paradoxes of gender appeared. The care workers' moral responsibility seemed to undermine equality between male and female care workers, and the elderly clients' gendered expectations and representations created inequality in care work. Furthermore, the gender-neutral assessments made by the care managers came to favour elderly men. Thus, the results suggest the importance of capturing the different perspectives in society's institutions, such as elderly care, in order to understand the complexities of gendered processes.

    Thai-Swedish couples in the Swedish daily press-discursive constitutions of 'The Other'2009Inngår i: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 17, nr 1, s. 34-47Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines discursive representations of Thai-Swedish couples in the Swedish daily press. The sample studied includes 17 articles. The study shows that the couples are constituted as inherently “different” through interweaving discourses such as a romantic love discourse, a sex tourism discourse, and a normalizing discourse, and through intersecting power relations such as those of gender, “race”/ethnicity, class, and sexuality. The normalized position representing “Swedishness” is not usually made explicit but is nevertheless constantly reproduced, and hierarchies are formed within as well as between the “normal” couple and “the Other”

    Administrators or Critical Cynics?: A Study of Gender Equality Workers in Swedish Higher Education2014Inngår i: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 22, nr 3, s. 204-218Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Gender equality workers have to perform a balancing act between feminist ideals for change and neo-liberal management trends. So-called audit discourses have gradually been introduced into Swedish universities, in line with an enterprise model. In this new context, the aim of our article is to investigate how gender equality workers at universities articulate gender equality and possibilities for change. What are their visions and strategies for achieving gender equality? This article is based on interviews with gender equality workers at three Swedish universities and explores how the legitimate gender equality worker is constructed. We found that there is a lack of visionary thinking among gender equality workers, which manifests itself in a sense that the distinction between visions and strategies has collapsed and technologies like auditing have become the vision. It seems that, whilst navigating between liberal feminist discourses and an increasingly neo-liberal setting, two positions are available for gender equality workers. The first is the "administrator", who asks for more tools and monitoring of gender equality, in order for the work to become more efficient and legitimate. The second position, the "critical cynic", makes scepticism and resistance to the increasing bureaucratization of gender equality work possible, but lacks alternative visions and strategies. Gender equality initiatives have thus become increasingly embedded in auditing technologies, and the possibilities for articulating alternatives or visionary ideals, beyond liberal values of anti-discrimination, seem limited.

    What Has Gender Equality Got to Do with It?: An Analysis of Policy Debates Surrounding Domestic Services in the Welfare States of Spain and Sweden2010Inngår i: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 18, nr 3, s. 185-203Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    As more and more political institutions stress the significance of gender equalitypolicies, it becomes important to investigate the different interpretations and meanings attached tothe concept of gender equality in diverse policy contexts. In this article we are interested inproblematizing visions of gender equality by studying the challenges that the growing amount ofpaid domestic work performed within European households poses for gender equality policies andpractices in two European countries. The aim is to reveal normative assumptions and silences inrelation to gender equality by comparing how “paid domestic work” has been framed in policydebates in Sweden and Spain. As welfare states, Sweden and Spain are generally considered to bevery different, and in policies on care for children and the elderly the differences are perhaps mostapparent. In both countries, however, paid domestic work in the home has become more and morecommon in the last two decades. The rise of paid domestic services in European households hasbeen interpreted as due to the limitations or decline of welfare states, the ageing populations, andthe increasing numbers of dual-earner families. These services are most often provided by women,predominantly of immigrant background, and involve a wide range of tasks, including care work.The phenomenon of an increasing sector of domestic (care) work poses a theoretical andmethodological challenge to gender and welfare studies. This article argues that the analysis ofdebates surrounding domestic service in private households is a useful starting-point for anintersectional analysis by means of revealing the normative assumptions and marginalizationembedded in gender equality policies. It uses a comparative frame analysis in combination withintersectional analysis to assess how interactions between gender, class, race, and sexuality havebeen articulated in the policy debates on domestic services in Spain and Sweden.

    White ethnography: (un)comfortable conveniences and shared privileges in fieldwork with swedish migrant women2010Inngår i: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 18, nr 2, s. 70-86Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses methodological dilemmas in ethnographic research with first-generation Swedish migrant women living in the United States. From a (white) Swedish researcher perspective, it seeks to disentangle aspects of shared privileges between researcher and participants and constructions of white spaces in a non-Swedish context. What does it mean to pass as a white, middle-class Swede in research and how are white privileges being upheld in such acting? How are class differences equalized when ethnography is conducted outside the national class system where internal hierarchies may be re-negotiated? The article argues that the use of “methodological capital” (Gallagher 2000), such as embodied capital and passing strategies that might be necessary to reach specific groups of examination, may also reproduce structural privileges by not intervening into normative assumptions of race, class, gender and sexuality. In these circumstances, the article inquires into what can be learned from studying privileged groups and, thereby, what may we fail to see.

    The Rhetoric of Inequality: Nordic Women and Men Argue against Sharing House-work2008Inngår i: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 16, nr 2, s. 79-95Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses anti-equality talk in heterosexual couples who participated in a Nordic study of daily life in families with children. A substantial proportion of the interviewees—women as well as men—argued against "more equality" in their relationship and in society in general. Their arguments show several similarities to sexist attitudes expressed in all-male conversations. Using the analytical tools of feminist discursive psychology, the article considers in the first place the cultural resources that these couples recruited to support their arguments. Seven interpretative repertoires were identified and illustrated, including "practical considerations", gendered and gender-neutral individualism, individual differences and sex differences, motherhood, and the primacy of domestic peace. Secondly, inspired by conversation analysis, the article details common rhetorical techniques of "fact construction" that speakers use in their narratives to gain credibility for anti-equality sentiment. The focus is on how the speakers used descriptions and explanations in ways that construct anti-equality opinions as "facts" based on seemingly objective observations, thus serving to further de-legitimate equality arguments

    Fear and Loathing in Umeå - Gendered Bodies and Actual Imprints of the Haga Man2013Inngår i: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 21, nr 2, s. 108-122Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyses the responses and reactions among women and men in Umeå during the period of threat from a serial rapist, the so-called Haga Man. This article discusses how the increased threat in public space influenced constructions of male and female bodies in space during a period of changing public crime discourses. The article illustrates the importance of context and demonstrates the temporality of how bodies are perceived in space. Public descriptions of the Haga Man focused on characteristics of the perpetrator’s body and “normal Swedish appearance”, which constructed an image of the dangerous white body. White male respondents positioned themselves in relation to these descriptions, and were partly challenged with respect to new perceptions and meanings associated with “normality”. In descriptions of the Haga Man’s victims, women were presented as vulnerable, but in contrast to many other cases of serial rape there was no immediate focus on their bodies in terms of respectability. A shift of emphasis took place, towards a focus on bodies that frighten, rather than those that are afraid. The findings contribute to a discussion of how gendered power relations can be understood through shifting representations of bodies in space.

    A Fantasy of the "Ambitious Young Girl" as Flexible Knowledge-worker Subject2012Inngår i: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 20, nr 4, s. 249-265Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the paradoxes of the so-called flexible work environments of late capitalism is that, at the same time as tribute is paid to organizational and work-force flexibility in terms of increased empowerment and freedom for workers to make their own decisions, there is also a strong emphasis on controlling their work. These ways of governing and controlling work have been problematized within critical organizational studies and analysed and conceptualized as audit regimes and audit cultures. Furthermore, feminist research highlights how the hegemonization of flexible work ideologies may result in declining health for employees and increased gender inequalities in the labour market.This article contributes to these critical strands of research by examining some of the gendered aspects of the ideological forces that work to install everyday work practices of "flexible subjects". The analysis is done by studying the means of knowledge-work fantasies, and especially the ideological forces behind the fantasy of the "ambitious young girl".I draw on feminist critiques of neo-liberalism and neo-liberal practices and, more specifically, theories of the professional investment that is supposedly common in neo-liberal discourses. The source material that laid the foundations for this article was gathered from within a more extensive ethnographic study where I followed the relocation of a knowledge-intensive civil service agency from the capital of Sweden to a smaller town northwest of the capital.The analysis shows that, in the process of moving work-place, employees became invested in a fantasy of "ambitious girls", a fantasy that entailed certain expectations of flexible and mouldable civil service workers in neo-liberal times.

    The Swedish Legal Approach to Prostitution: Trends and Tendencies in the Prostitution Debate2016Inngår i: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 24, nr 1, s. 45-55Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on academic responses to the Swedish law prohibiting the purchase of sexual services, enacted in 1999. It highlights the close link between popular – populist – ideas circulating in media, and academic work discussing problems with the given legislation. Two myths can be traced, exchanged between and enforced by on the one hand voices in the Sex Workers Rights movement and voices from within academia. The first myth relates to the legal construction of the legislation – which is obscured in order to make women in prostitution seem like victims in the eyes of the lawmaker, and hence portray the legislation as a "radical feminist-victim-oriented" piece of work. The second myth relates to the historical events leading up to the law, what alliances and arguments that were used. The made up history again puts the legislation firmly in radical feminist politics, all though the alliances and arguments came from many strands of thoughts and crucial decisions came about due to ad hoc events as well as the lack of an articulated resistance. The article concludes that the research field is under influence from strong political interests, so far successful in producing non valid arguments against the law. This in turn makes it difficult to gain knowledge about the outcomes and effects of "the Swedish model" on prostitution.
