Abstract [en]

The municipalities are important actors in the struggle to achieve gender equality. The main purpose

of this study is to compare two municipalities, one with a higher representation of women and one

with a lower representation in the political assemblies. We want to determine if there´s a difference in

the way that the municipalities approach and define their gender equality work. To answer these

questions we have divided our study into three different analyses. Based on previous research, our

hypothesis is that in the municipality with a higher degree of women's representation, gender equality

will be mentioned more often in political meetings (analysis one). We also assume that this

municipality will have a more norm-critical approach in it´s gender equality plan (analysis two) and

that the result will be reflected in the municipality's annual report (analysis three). The method of this

study is a comparative analysis based on the most similar system design. The municipalities studied

are Gällivare, which has a high representation of women and Arboga that has a low representation of

women in the political assemblies. The overall findings of the first two analyses indicate that women´s

representation doesn’t have a positive impact on how often gender equality is adressed and that

women´s representation doesn´t lead to a more norm-critical approach in the gender equality plan. The

results of the third analysis doesn´t reflect the result of the first two. On the contrary it indicates that

the representation of women actually can have an effect on the municipality's gender equality focus.

When all three of the analyses are taken into account we find that neither of the municipalities

prioritize gender equality work.
