Radical gender equality work? : An ideal typ analysis of the Swedish Government's and the European Union's strategies to combat men's violence against women (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this following study is to clarify the Swedish Government´s as well as the European Union's ideological starting point in gender equality work. The study is limited to the gender equality objective of men's violence against women. It addresses the respective strategies of the institutions to combat gender based violence. The approaches of the institutions are compared to show similarities and differences in its approach to the gender equality problem.

 

This study is a text analysis which aims to examine feminist expressions in the strategic frameworks of the institutions with the use of ideal types. Radical feminism and liberal feminism represent the two ideal types. The purpose of these two ideal types is to enable an estimate of how far or close the institutions are in relation to the ideal types.

 

The governmental strategies of Sweden are ideologically closer to radical feminism than liberal feminism meanwhile the strategies of the European union are closer to liberal feminism. The discernable similarity between the institutions is that they both wish to make public reforms. However, it is reasonable that Sweden complements those with social changes with focus on structures and gender norms. The government of Sweden therefore includes a wider variety of actors in their gender equality work. The study concludes with a discussion about the result in relation to the feminist theory approach and gendered institutions.
