Antisocial Girls : a 3 § LVU Discourse Analysis of Construction of Feminity in Court (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to, by a discourse analysis of LVU court cases, display how conceptions of feminity, sexuality and antisocial behaviour related to gender is constructed and examine whether this construction is characterized by continuity or alteration. We have examined 20 LVU court cases by using a discourse analysis. The results were analysed by using gender theory. The results showed among others that the construction of feminity is created by the courts portrayal of the girls in the court cases and what is portrayed as normal or deviant related to the girls’ behaviour. Behaviours which are portrayed as deviant for girls are for example use/abuse of addictive substances, to put yourself in environments filled with risks, to have behaviours which are negatively extrovert and/or criminal, to have a destructive behaviour in succession to mental illness, not to be an “ideal” victim, to see elderly men and express your own sexuality. One of our foremost conclusions is that the court, by our interpretation, incitements that the girls should assume stereotypical gender roles which are, for instance, characterized by vulnerability, caring for others and the need to be controlled.
