"Male and female he created them." On the notion of gender contract in our most beloved children's' Bible books : A narratological and sex-gender analysis on The Children's Bible & Bible for Children (English)
Most people in Sweden have come into contact with the narratives from the Bible, through a children’s bible book. There exists several different kinds of these books for children. Two of the most popular is Barnens bibel and Bibel för barn, which are the explored subjects of this essay. The narratives conveys different norms and values, and it is therefore legitimate to investigate what they convey about women and femininity. Five female characters; Eve, Sarah, Hagar, Naomi and Ruth are the focus of the study. The stories underwent a narratological analysis to clarify the narrative structure. Furthermore, sex- and gender theory were applied on the narratives and showed that they in general express a dominant male norm, and dichotomy between the sexes.
