Växjö AIS : Equality, gender norms and possibillities of development (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

This is a paper that focuses on mapping the possibilities of development in sports for women in the Växjö based athletic club Växjö AIS. The paper uses Yvonne Hirdmans gender theory which states that women are socially subordinated men in today's society (written 1988). The aim of using this theory, is to see if there is support for Hirdmans theory among female athletes in Växjö AIS during 1984-1998. Hirdman also discusses whether an equal social society is better reached through segregation or integration and therefore the study is categorised after these two ways of sectioning practice and competition in an athletic club.To fulfil this aim, the study is done by conducting two enquiries, the first focuses on newsletters produced by the female athletes themselves, and the other one investigates surveys with earlier female athletes in Växjö AIS during the period investigated. Each study has its own “part-aim” where the newsletters are interpreted to map female self-perception. A large part in the possibilities of development. The survey has as an aim to explain female possibilities of development through an organisational perspective. What gender had the best training facilities, etc.? The paper also compares the survey from female athletes active from 1987-1997 with the guidelines from the Swedish Riksidrottsförbundet (national athletes association) and their equality plan from 1989.The aim is to see if the plan had any effect on possibilities for development among female athletes, comparing before and after the plans were launched.
