Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to describe the motivations of women to participate in politics and to examine whether women feel that they are held back by something in their political participation.

 

The questions of this study are:

  • How do women motivate their participation in different fields in politics?
  • Are there any obstacles that are holding women back in their political participation?

 

Interviews have been used as the method to gather the empirical data. When applying the theoretical framework on the empirical material the main conclusion is that women tend to participate more frequently in political activities that are less time consuming and more sporadic in comparison to more traditional forms of political participation. Women are also more inclined to participate in political activities on a lower level that makes up part of their everyday life, one example of this is women’s increasing participating in political consumerism.
