Abstract [en]

This study builds on the gender equality in the Swedish labor market and critical

voices in research stating that the gender policies implemented are "missing the

target." The purpose of this essay is to examine and compare how the Swedish

political parties, the Moderates and the Social Democrats, problematize the unequal

labor market. It also aims to examine what these problematisations says about

women's and men's responsibilities in the promotion of gender equality. To achieve

my chosen purposes, I have used the inductive method of analysis "What's the

problem represented to be?" I have also used a feministic approach of institutions as

an analytical tool. The study results show that the parties represents the problem of

inequality as a problem of "women". Thus, it is women who are assigned

responsibility for gender equality in the labor market. The study results also show that

the gender equality policies implemented are based on a male-centered perspective.
