Abstract [en]

In many parts of the world women are still largely underrepresented in parliaments. Sweden is however one of the countries that have developed one of the more equal parliaments in the world. This progress has given rise to a question in women studies; how does a more equal representation affect the politics? Earlier studies on this field in Sweden was mainly done in the late 80’s and early 90’s and how the situation is today, being largely unknown. This thesis explores differences between men and women in the writing of motions. To identify these differences, a quantitative content analysis is conducted of all freestanding motions of 2015. As it turns out there is large differences between male and female commissioners both in regard to the participation as well as the content of the motions. For example, women write considerably less motions and men’s motions gets twice the amount of endorsements.

Abstract [sv]

I många delar av världen är kvinnor fortfarande underrepresenterade i parlamenten. Sverige är dock ett av länderna i framkant vad det gäller en jämställd representation och många andra länder blir mer och mer jämställda. Denna utveckling har lett till att ett kvinnovetenskapligt problemområde utvecklats; hur påverkar en mer jämställd representation politiken som förs? Tidigare studier på området har framförallt genomförts under sent 80-tal och tidigt 90-tal och hur situationen ser ut idag är i stort sett outforskat. Denna uppsats undersöker skillnader mellan manliga och kvinnliga riksdagsledamöter i motionsskrivandet. För att identifiera skillnader så genomförs en kvantitativ innehållsanalys av fristående motioner från år 2015. Det visar sig att det finns stora könsskillnader både vad det gäller hur många motioner som skrivs och vad de handlar om. Kvinnor skriver bland annat betydligt färre motioner och mäns motioner får dubbelt så ofta någon form av bifall.
