Abstract [en]


At a time when the discussion of feminism is hot in the media, in the schools and in the cottages so I have been interested in how feminist worlds order might look like and what are the roads there. There are plenty of barriers in the community, some of them you easily could influence.

This essay problematize and define the problems behind the difficulties of reaching a feminist world order, but also the factors that are important to achieve this world order. How colonization that began several hundred years ago spread and secured the patriarchal society and its influence all the way to the society of today. But even more immediate factors, on how we ourselves are involved in shaping our society in terms of where we live, how we educate ourselves, and what jobs we choose. Status symbols in society as economics, profession and political influence are all to be reckoned with when it comes to influencing society. Women are limited in some of these areas in various ways; this means segregation in society and loss of freedom and knowledge.

I am using a literature study to investigate what today's prominent geography researchers and other scientists have to say about a feminist society. Many books and studies have been plowed through to highlight the problems of all people in the same society does not have the same opportunities. Many of these scientists are positive and indicate that minor changes in society could give feminism a boost. For many developing countries it is important to educate women and create a gender family planning. An education will give new perspectives and will show that there is more to life than being a mother. For many developed countries it is important to let the woman participate in male-dominated industries and vice versa. Equal responsibility for the children will give more chance to improve gender equality in the economy, and the doors will open even into the political realm.
