Equal conditions for women and men : A questionnaire study of the equality work in the regional library sector (English)
Abstract [en]

This masters thesis investigates how the Swedish county libraries relate to equality between men and women. The thesis treats the county library both as a place of work and as a part of the national library network. One of the reasons why this study focuses on county libraries is because of their special position in the Swedish library organisation as a link between the national policy and the public libraries. The analysis in the study is based on theories that argue masculinity and femininity as social constructions, and therefore can be affected by a different type of conduct. Data was gathered using qualitative questionnaires combined with some quantitative elements that were used to gain fundamental facts regarding the distribution of employees between the sexes and the existence of equality policies. The conclusions drawn were that many county libraries did not have special policies for equality questions. The strategies for including equality in the daily work with the public libraries were often based on separating the sexes even though the main purpose with the strategies was to eliminate the differences between men and women. Generally the librarians were positive to include equality as a part of their work. The main reason that the county libraries did not work with equality was because the public libraries did not request that type of assistance.
