Abstract [en]

AbstractTitel: The rules of belonging to family - a study about the process of reconstruction of class through working class womenAuthor: Helena OttossonThe study begins with describing that Swedish society is facing major challenges, which depends on the demographic changes involving large groups of elderly and children that needs a great deal of labour, which the community cannot provide. In these occupations you find that the most common employees are part time working women. To find out why these women, with uniting factors which brings them together as one class, choose part time work is the intention of this study. 10 interviews with women from this class were therefor made to learn about their situation in life and relations in their close surrounding. Research suggest that dilemmas that women are struggling with while choose how much time they plan to spend away from home could be connected to class. The theoretic framework of this study is therefore Pierre Bourdieu’s philosophy of the construction of the social room, where class has a central role in the making and reconstruction. The theory explains the relation between social positions, habitus and peoples subjective choices and makes a model for the explanation of the phenomenon and an answer to the purpose of the study. The purpose of this study is to understand the choice to work part time through women in child- and eldercares stories about their lives. Findings in the study is that class can have influence over peoples choices in life and that construction of the social environment is an active choice which is connected to values, interests and goals.
