Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine two educational materials from different decades, to see if they have a conscious gender and equality perspective, and to see if they have followed the development society made regarding gender and equality. Even the curricula have a part in my study as I will relate them to the educational materials. Equality as a concept means briefly that women and men should have the same conditions, and gender depicts our notions of femininity and masculinity.

I have chosen to do textual analyses, focusing on multimodal discourse because I analyze both text and image. I also use both quantitative and qualitative methods.

My questions are: In which way do the curricula and the educational materials express equality?; In which way do the curricula and the educational materials express gender?; Do the educational materials express the fundamental values written about equality and gender in the curricula? And, if this is the case, does it mean that educational materials have followed the development of the Swedish society?

The conclusion of this work is that equality and gender are presented as goals in both curricula, but the new curricula have developed that section more. With external criteria, such as the characters' appearance and their qualities, the educational materials express equality and gender. Both learning materials express fundamental values in the curricula​​ but none of the studied material are equal in the full sense.
