Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to find out how the four teachers at the two preschools believe they are working with gender and how they actually work with it in practice. It also aims to show how they treat the children at the preschool based on their gender.

  • What is the preschool teachers view on gender and equality?
  • How do they consider that they work with gender and gender equality, and how do they really work with it in practice?

The study is based on a qualitative study were I chose to both interview and observe four preschool teachers from two different preschools. My theoretical starting point is Yvonne Hirdmans theory of gender and also research on gender equality. The results show that the majority of respondents believed that gender and gender equality means almost the same thing or have the same meaning. They could not explain the concepts further. It also showed that the majority of informants are working for equality more than gender, when they emphasizes that the individual should be placed in the center and that it should be based on individual rights, regardless of gender.
