This thesis aims to describe the differences and similarities between a male dominated sector and a female dominated sector based on gender mainstreaming documentation as well as through interviews with people working within the sectors. The sectors that were chosen in this study were the fire department and the nursing and care administration of Växjö municipality. Both of the administrations’ genders mainstreaming documents were subjected to content analysis in order to describe differences and similarities between the administrations. The analysis found that there were differences in approaches between the administrations were the nursing and care administration had aims of achieving a specified amount of men working within the administration, which the fire department didn’t have. On the other hand the fire department trained workers in gender issues, which the nursing and care administration didn’t do.The second part of the thesis aimed to describe differences and similarities in ideas, opinions and notions regarding gender mainstreaming, the findings illustrate that while both administrations understand and want to achieve the aims specified in the gender mainstreaming documents, they expressed the opinion that they couldn’t.
