Abstract [en]

This study aims to explore how the gendered allocation of tasks within political parties influences the career path for male and female politicians through a case study of the Swedish Center party. A gendered allocation of tasks has earlier been observed in the context of academia and business, where women tend to perform more tasks with low promotability and men more tasks with high promotability. According to the existing research, this contributes to the enduring work place inequality. A survey was conducted among leading politicians in the Center party to determine which tasks have high and low promotability. A parallel survey was then administered among members of the party’s youth organization to determine which tasks male and female members perform. The results show that men are significantly more interested than women in pursuing a political career and perform a significantly larger amount of tasks. The study provides no evidence that female members of the Center party youth organization in general perform more tasks with low promotability than their male colleagues, and more research is required to determine if and why that is so.
