Abstract [en]

Gender and politics, how well do they match? An interesting way of studying gender and politics is therefore to look at the legislation proposals from the government. In Sweden when the government make a legislation proposal it have to have a chapter that consider the aspect of equality between men and women. This paper aim to study the language in the gender aspect of the legislation proposal. This is done from a gender perspective. I also want to look at the relationship between equality between women and men and politics by trying to answer why the gender perspective is written as it is. The method used here in this paper is discourse analysis and mainly Michel Foucault and critical discourse analysis. Discourse analysis is the only method that makes it possibly to look at the language and the different discourses and to see what lies hidden under the written text. The results in this paper shows that the gender chapter of the legislation proposal is not based on equality between women and men. The gender chapter doesn’t add anything new to the equality between women and men and it doesn’t make any effort to really try to take the gender concerns seriously and professionally.
