The aim of this thesis is to investigate and analyse the debate of ideas on gender equality policy during 1998 - 2011. The questions raised in this thesis are; which gender equality policy ideology has prevailed during 1998 - 2011, and which ideological orientation have the different ministers of gender equality expressed during the same period of time? I have conducted the study by analysing government publications and debate articles against a ideological framework consisting of different types of feminist theory. In order to get a result as representative as possible, I have only used the material from each of the ministers during their time in office. The research method that I have used when analyzing the material is qualitative text analysis. The findings of the study discerns three phases characterized by different gender equality policy ideologies. The first phase, between the years 1998 and 2003, is characterized by a radical feminist gender equality policy ideology, and the second phase, between the years 2003 and 2006, by a socialist radical feminist gender equality policy ideology. The third phase, between the years 2006 and 2011, is influenced by a liberal gender equality policy ideology. However, it is uncertain whether or not this phase can be recognized by a ideological framework based on feminist theory, since it is influenced by other ideological grounds as well. The result indicates a clear ideological shift from a more radical gender equality policy to a gender equality policy less influenced by feminist theory.
