The sport pages – a man's world? : A study of Göteborgs-Postens sport pages from a gender perspective (English)
Abstract [en]

This study examines from a gender perspective how the gender distribution is viewed in the content of Göteborgs-Posten's sports pages and the short and long term effects of the the newspaper's gender equality plan that was introduced in 2005. It is a quantitative study for two sample periods, 2005 and 2009, that investigates how many articles in the newspaper which is about women's sports and male sports. Michel Foucault's theory of discourse is central to the study, his view of identity in society and how these are represented fit well on gender issues in sports journalism. The results show that women's sport is greatly subordinate to man's sport in terms of number of articles. The gender equality plan has not had any noticeable effects on Göteborgs-Posten's sports pages. This is due to a variety of factors – economic aspects weigh heavily in this problem.

 

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie undersöker utifrån ett genusperspektiv hur könsfördelningen ser ut i innehållet på Göteborgs-Postens sportsidor och vad tidningens jämställdhetsplan, som infördes 2005, fått för kortsiktiga och långsiktiga effekter. Det är en kvantitativ studie som under två urvalsperioder, 2005 och 2009, utreder hur många av tidningens artiklar som handlar om kvinnoidrott respektive mansidrott. Michel Foucaults diskursteori är central för studien då hans syn på identiteter i samhället och hur dessa representeras passar väl in på genusproblematiken inom sportjournalistiken. Resultatet visar att kvinnoidrotten är kraftigt underställd mansidrotten sett till antal artiklar. Jämställdhetsplanen har inte haft några märkbara effekter på Göteborgs-Postens sportsidor. Detta beror på en rad olika faktorer - de ekonomiska aspekterna väger tungt inom denna problematik.
