Abstract [en]

This study is based on the feminist belief in the importance of a reorganization of the existing gender hierarchy, where women have less power than men. Since news media reflect as well as contribute to create the reality we live in has the purpose with this study been to shed some light on how the gender structure is expressed in Sweden’s most popular television news program. I chose to examine one broadcast per day from the Public Service SVT news program Rapport during January 2010 using quantitative content analysis and the result was as follows:

  • 65 % of the news programs was presented by a woman news anchor
  • 36 % of the news reports was carried through by a women journalist
  • 31 % of the interviews contained a female participant
  • The representation of female participants in interviews did not depend onif the journalist was a woman or a man
  • The representation of female participants in interviews did not depend on if the report was from Sweden or abroad
  • Women were more often than men interviewed in the role as nursing staff, development aid worker, teacher or principal, parent of a son, retired and sick or sick leave
  • Only men were interviewed in the role as rescue worker, custom staff, member of the armed forces, house owner and tourist.
