The study aimed to shed light on the distribution of space in the newspaper between men and women, those within power and those without in Swedish local press. The study was conducted with four newspapers, during a month of time with local editorial news material. In our study, we have assumed Lippmann’s and Strömbäck’s theories of pseudo-reality and distribution of gender and position of power in Sahlstrand and Jarlbro. The study showed slightly better results in the gender balance than previous research have shown. Local press gives more room for non-in power than previous research suggests.
