Abstract [en]

This chapter examines the complex ways in which divergent political developments in Norway and Sweden from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century impacted upon womens ability to take an active part in politics. From a European perspective, Scandinavian women were the first to get a universal vote in national parliamentarian elections. The right of Swedish parishes to participate in and exert their influence on local church elections has a long history and is recorded at least as far back as the medieval law-rolls of the Swedish Provinces. During the Age of Liberty and, especially by the end of the period, the two commoner estates of burghers and peasants got political influence, not least through the party system of hats and caps. However, in local politics, Sweden continued a system with female taxpayers voting, while the feminist movements in Norway and Denmark had to struggle on until 1910 and 1915, respectively, before women got the universal vote in local elections.

Abstract [en]

At the same time as Denmark and Sweden were locked in a battle for supremacy in northern Europe, several other countries around Europe engaged in struggles for dominance. One conflict that had profound impact on much of the Continent as well as Scandinavia was the fight for hegemony between France and Astria after the Peace of Westphalia in 1648. In Flattering Alliances we learn about how those clashes dragged the Scandinavian kingdoms into European top-level politics, and forced them to take part in the diplomatic game, constantly negotiating risks and profits.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the article is to apply gender perspective to a wide-ranging study of different actors’ dealings during the Gavle City Council elections of 1910 and 1912 in order to analyse local political culture in the wake of the 1909 reforms to the Local Government Act. Taking as the starting-point the idea of political culture and the actions of various key figures at the time of the election, the focus is on the gendering of Swedish politics once women’s suffrage had been introduced. The results are based on an intersectional analysis of the electorate’s behaviour, using electoral rolls, population registers, and press reports. The study includes local women’s organization’s strategies to increase women’s political participation, as well as the part played by the local branches of the political parties. Seen in the national context, Gavle was unusual - three women won seats on the City Council in 1910, in the run-up to which the local Society for Women’s Suffrage had run a spirited campaign to ensure that the women candidates got to stand in safe seats. All the newspapers in 1910 carried exhortations to voters of both sex to exercise their votes, and several newspapers reported an enthusiastic election turn-out amongst women.

Two years later the Society for Women’s Suffrage had split, losing some of its influence in the process. Before the 1912 election, moreover, no women were selected to stand for a safe seats, and the newspapers’ reporting of the election tended to render the female electorate invisible, which in itself gave a somewhat misleading picture of the situation, bearing in mind that in the event similar numbers of women would vote in this election as had done in the previous one. Otherwise, in terms of the actual turn-out, it is noticeable that the male and female electorate adhered to the same social pattern - the rich, as always, voted in far greater numbers than those with few votes (municipal suffrage was income-based in such a way as an individual could have two or more votes in the same election). Yet there were also some noticeable differences between the sexes. The majority of the female electorate were unmarried women with few votes; a majority of the men who turned out to vote were married and well established. Since all the political parties without exception put up male candidates in the 1912 election, and chose to address their propaganda to a gender-neutral electorate, they tapped a fundamental characteristic of political culture that had deep historical roots. We would therefore argue that the actions of the local branch of the Society for Women’s Suffrage prior to the 1910 election were crucial in establishing the fact of women as political citizens.

Abstract [en]

This study investigates the conflict over the election of the rector of Hälsingtuna parish in Hälsingland in the 1730s. Seven peasants who were active in the conflict have been studied in close detail, with the aim to determine why peasants became politically active. Four hypotheses have been tested: First, that politically active peasants belonged to the upper strata of landholders. Second, that politically active peasants possessed the confidence of the parishioners. Third, that politically active peasants held local office. And finally, that politically active peasants were the sons of politically active parents. Only the third hypothesis has found confirmation in this study. Five of the seven peasants who were active in the conflict over the election held local office. This limited study does not lend itself to general conclusions, however. Instead, it should be seen as an invitation to more comprehensive studies of the subject.
