Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to provide a description of the way gender issues are handled at the regional TV-news program Västerbottensnytt. Since media is the public square of today and as such it is dominated by men i wanted to se if this station with its outspoken will to take responsibility for presenting a equal newsfeed, in reality achieves this. I also attempt to study whether the notion that an equal media content not only strengthens democracy but is the very foundation democracy is based upon. My method has been visit and study their concrete model and evaluate how the editorial staff works with and in relation to this pragmatic model. To sum up this thesis, it can be said that, even at Västerbottensnytt, men are somewhat over represented but the awareness of gender representation in mass media shows that equality and democracy are possible to reach through a relatively simple model, presupposed that theentire editorial staff keeps these issues prioritized
