Jämställdhet i den offentliga debatten: Att använda the theory of planned behaviour för att förklara jämställdhetsattityder och jämställdhetsbeteenden i en politiskt kontext (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Gender equality attitudes and behaviours were studied using a newly created questionnaire with scales for attitudes in different domains of gender equality. The theory of planned behaviour was used to understand the relation between attitudes and behaviour. The study's hypotheses were: (1) a weak or moderate correlation would be found between attitude and behaviours in all domains of gender equality and (2) attitudes and behaviour would correlate more strongly in domains of gender equality which are more common in the public debate. To find which domains were in the public debate the guiding document for Sweden's work with gender equality was used. The questionnaire was distributed to a sample of 301 students and analysed. Hypothesis (1) was supported by the study's findings. Aside from one domain, which was different from the rest and discussed, the domains in the public debate showed a greater correlation. This gave support to hypothesis (2) as well, but with some reservation. In conclusion, gender equal attitudes are not necessarily associated with gender equal behaviours but they do corralate more strongly in domains which are publicly debated.

Abstract [sv]

 

Jämställdhetsattityder och jämställdhetsbeteenden studerades med hjälp av en nyskapad enkät med skalor för olika jämställdhetsdomäner. The theory of planned behaviour användes för att förstå kopplingen mellan attityder och beteende. Uppsatsens hypotoser var: (1) attityder och beteende skulle ha en svag eller måttlig korrelation i alla jämställdhetsdomäner och (2) attityder och beteenden skulle korrelera starkare i jämställdhetsdomäner som var vanliga i den offentliga debatten. Enkäten delades ut till ett urval av 301 studenter och analyserades. Hypotes (1) fick stöd av uppsatsens resultat. För att ta reda på vilka domäner som var vanligare i den offentliga debatten användes det styrdokument som Sverige använder för sitt jämställdhetsarbete. Förutom en domän, som skilde sig från de andra och som diskuterades, hade de domäner som var vanligare i den offentliga debatten starkare korrelation. Detta gör stöd åt hypotes (2), men med vissa reservationer. Sammanfattnings är jämställdhetsattityder inte nödvändigtvis associerat med jämställdhetsbeteenden men de korrelerar starkare inom domäner som oftare debatteras offentligt.
