Abstract [en]

The education curriculum states that one of the tasks for schools and preschools are to promote gender equality by discouraging traditional gender roles. Gender equality is therefore a part of the fundamental values of the education system. In order to be able to work with the issue of gender equality, the employees need help and further education. Therefore some schools and preeschools contact a teacher specialized in gender equality work.

In this essay I have chosen to do a field study of such a teacher at work during different workshops with nurses and teachers. The aim is to examine how she discusses gender ideas and what discussions arises from the meetings with the attendents. I focus on discussions about children, gender and gender equality, how gender is described by the teacher specialized in gender equality work and how she discusses other issues such as class and/or ethnicity.

I have a social constructionist perspective and use gender theory with representatives as Hirdman, Connell and Butler for my analysis.

My results show that the teacher specialized in gender equality work and the attendants tend to make sweeping statements about boys and girls as a group, that it is very important so point out that the aim of gender equality work is not to make everybody the same and that gender equality is mainly described as a problem for "the others".
