45/55 versus 40/60. : A study of representation of gender in debate programs (English)
We have studied the differences between people debating on a program in apublic service-channel and a privately-owned channel. We have chosen thetwo biggest debate programs, Kvällsöppet in the privately-owned channelTV4 and Debatt in the public service-channel SVT 1. We have in aquantitative content analysis studied female and male, how many of each thatare participating, how long time they talk in the program and in what rolethey have in the debate. We have studied 10 episodes of Kvällsöppet thespring season 2010 and compared with Johanna Paulsson & Patrik Rosellstudy “30/70. A study of women and men who speak in SVT´s Debatt.” Fromthe same season. We have also investigated 10 episodes of each programfrom fall 2011, we wanted to see if there were any changes made during theyears. The results show that Kvällsöppet in the privately-owned channel ismore equal between the gender. The speaking time and the proportion ofparticipants is 45 percent women and 55 percent men in 2011 and 40/60 in 2010.The program Debatt in the public service channel got the result 40/60 fall in2011 and 30/70 in spring 2010. To study the women and man roles of theparticipants in the debate, we made the same classification as Paulsson &Rosell did. We divided the participants in different categories according totheir role in the debate program. The results shows that Kvällsöppet, is muchbetter on equal representation of the female and male gender.
