Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine how Gävle newspapers Arbetarbladet and Gefle Dagblad produce female and male politicians in their editorials. Articles from November 20, 2015 - January 20, 2016, were analyzed by quantitative content analysis and accompanying text analysis. During this period there was a historical and talked about change of power in Gävle City Council. The results of the study showed that Gefle Dagblad only wrote about the male municipal members and Arbetarbladet about the women. The results also showed that the newspaper Gefle Dagblad wrote about the male politicians slightly more in their articles. These are interesting results because the majority of writers in Gefle Dagblad were women.

Berit Ås theory of the suppression techniques ridicule and invisibility was mainly used in the analysis of the material. We have also used Gunilla Jarlbros theory about how male dominance is maintained in journalism.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att utifrån ett genusperspektiv undersöka hur Gävles dagstidningar Arbetarbladet och Gefle Dagblad framställer kvinnliga och manliga politiker i sina ledarartiklar. Under tidsperioden 20 november 2015 - 20 januari 2016 har artiklar analyserats genom kvantitativ innehållsanalys och kompletterande textanalys. Under denna period skedde ett historiskt och omtalat maktskifte i Gävle Kommunfullmäktige. Resultatet av studien visade att Gefle Dagblad endast skrivit om manliga kommunala ledamöter och Arbetarbladet om kvinnliga. Utfallet visade även att tidningen Gefle Dagblad behandlade manliga politiker en aning mer. Detta är intressanta resultat eftersom majoriteten av skribenterna i Gefle Dagblad var kvinnor.

Berit Ås teori om härskarteknikerna förlöjligande och osynliggörande användes främst i analysen av materialet. Vi har även använt Gunilla Jarlbros teori om hur manlig dominans upprätthålls inom journalistik.
