Abstract [en]

The purpose of this examination is to examine from a feminist perspective how men and women have been represented in five civic textbooks for Swedish Upper Secondary School. The examination has a time perspective from the 1970´s until today, during this time Swedish Upper Secondary School´s value has all along been equality between men and women. To reach the results both quantitative and a qualitative method has been used. The results give indications that men´s and women’s representation have been changed over time, in the early textbooks women was described as just women and were linked to their bodies while men were presented as people with names and careers. In the latest textbook sex and gender where no longer discussed but men where over- represented in both text and pictures. This give indications that civic textbooks have change the way they wright about men and women. In the early textbooks the authors wrote about men and women which gave a clearly picture of the differences that was presented, and which readers can question. In the latest textbook the authors no longer wrote about sexes but choose more quietly to over- represent men in both text and pictures. These civic textbooks showed a transformation over time in the representation of men and women, the early ones showed a representation that we could see clearly and question, while the newest showed a representation which more silent choose to give men more space. All the textbooks that has been examined, in different ways didn´t reach the School value of equality between men and women.
