Abstract [en]

In this study, I try to find the reason behind men’s comparatively small involvement in gender politics, relative to women. I suggest that this may be due to gender politics being an area of female power and authority, where men are finding it difficult to make an impact. In interviewing eight young politicians, knowledgable on the subject, I find some support for this claim. According to two interviewees, women are said to wield more influence, than men, primarily over what’s perceived to be women’s issues. According to one, women wield more influence, both over perceived men’s and perceived women’s  issues. I make the claim that these kinds of ideas may influence men’s involvement in gender politics, though more research on the subject is needed.
