Abstract [en]

The current thesis aims to identify the presence of discrimination effecting intersectional women, focusing on the intersection of gender identity (cisgender versus transgender) and ethnicity (Swedish versus Arabic) in the recruitment process, in relation to two job positions of kindergarten teacher and kindergarten principal. Additionally, we aim to investigate the social cognition stereotypes regarding warmth and competence associating with that intersection. Furthermore, Intersectionality is adopted as a conceptual framework for deciphering discrimination targeting intersectional women. In order to investigate the proposed research questions, a mixed-design quantitative experiment was conducted. The results indicate the presence of significant discrimination against transgender women in comparison with cisgender women with respect to perceived employability for the kindergarten teacher position. Results further indicate the lack of significant interactive effect of gender identity and ethnicity on both job positions. Lastly, there was no significant evidence of group difference in stereotypes of warmth and competence. Practical implications of the current results will be further discussed.
