Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study has been to examine how the media presents policymakers from a gender perspective. We have made an analysis on the basis of genderdichotomies. We have studied images from the Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet as well as the French newspaper Le Monde in order to achieve a greater understanding in which way the both medias contributes to the reproduction of gender in the media.The conclusion of the study has shown that the gender system is somewhat confirmed by the way in which men and women are presented in the medias. Men are presented with more traditional gender related associations than women who is shown in a more dynamic constellation, this is mostly evident in the Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie har varit att undersöka hur media presenterar makthavare med utgångspunkt ur ett genusperspektiv. Vi har gjort en bildanalys vars verktyg har operationaliserats med utgångspunkt i genussystemets dikotomier. Vi har studerat bilder ur såväl Svenska Dagbladet som Le Monde i syfte att bredda förståelsen för hur Sverige och Frankrike ter sig ifråga om reproduktionen av genus i nämnda medier. De konklusioner som studien har uppvisat är att rådande genussystem delvis bekräftats då män i nämnda medier allt mer ofta framställs utifrån det som är manligt associerat. Däremot finns det en trend där kvinnor är mer dynamiska i hur de framställs utifrån könsbundna associationer, detta främst påtagligt i Svenska Dagbladet.
