Abstract [en]

The essay examines how female politicians themselves experience their political path

in regards to opportunities and obstacles. The questions of the essay revolve around

this as well as if there are any differences in experience between politicians from the

two Swedish parties Socialdemokraterna and Moderaterna. The two parties are chosen

to represent traditional left and right ideologies. Quantitative measures are used to

examine the female representation in Växjö kommun, which does not show a huge

uneven amount of either men or women. Qualitative measures are used to examine ten

female politicians’ personal experiences through personal interviews. After a

comparison between the representatives of the two parties the conclusion is that they

have all experienced both opportunities and obstacles, however in different ways.
