Abstract [en]

The aim of this research is to do a comparison between students’ view of equality in secondary school and in gymnasium. The research begins with four focus groups, two on each grade to conduct material. The focus groups with girls and boys were separated from each other. With help from the researcher, acting as a moderator in the focus groups, the students have discussed advertisement and what message it convey. The students have also discussed their view of femininity and masculinity. With its starting point in separate maintenance and hierarchy, the theory of gender was discussed and connected to the result of the research. The conducted material was further on analyzed to be able to find out if the school can affect the students’ thoughts about equality. The conducted material from the focus groups was compared between boys and girls and also between the two grades.
