This thesis is a discourse theory analysis of two feminist anthologies - Det heter feminism! and F- ordet. By analyzing these texts through the three categories feminism & feminists, gender equality & equality and sex/gender & sexuality I have raised questions about the feminist debate in Sweden in the 21st century.
The discourse theory’s ideas of descriptions of reality and fixation of meaning lies as a foundation for this thesis. The concepts of social constructionism, post structuralism and essentialism/anti essentialism are central for the analysis as well as concepts connected to the three previously mentioned categories.
The intention of this thesis is to describe and analyze a fraction of the Swedish feminist debate in the 21st century and discuss its meaning in a societal context. A number of conclusions were reached in the final discussion. The differences between today’s feminist movement and the 1970’s feminist movement are connected to thoughts on a practical and a theoretical movement. It is shown how paradoxes, formed by norms and power structures in society, create a void where some people are forced to exist. Critical voices from within the movement are high lighted and connections between the feminist movement and discourse theory are established.
