Abstract [en]

The aim of this Master’s thesis is to investigate articles in Swedish library journals on children’s reading from gender and sex perspectives. Gender theory as it has been developed by Yvonne Hirdman and Robert W. Connell is used to analyze the articles. The thesis includes a chapter on previous research in the fields of gender in relation to children, reading and the library. The analysis of the articles reveals that the differences between girls and boys and their reading are both a product of notions of sex and gender. In the articles boys are described as avoiding reading and/or certain books because they associate it with girls and “girly” things are seen as forbidden for them. Other articles, that describe the differences as a product of sex, argue that girls and boys like reading different types of books and that these differences should be encouraged because otherwise children may loose interest in reading.
