Abstract [en]

This study aims to investigate how women’s and men’s religious and cultural experiences are represented in three religious studies textbooks for the new curriculum GY11. The chapter on Hinduism in each book has been analyzed and subsequently compared to one another. This study focuses on both qualitative and quantitative representation; how much space is given to each sex and what types of experiences are presented. The method used is framing, which means recurring themes and attitudes about said groups have been looked for. The results show that both the quantitative and qualitative representation of Hindu women and men is relatively even, which shows a positive development from textbooks published a decade ago.
