Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis was to study if there are differences between female and male journalists writing in daily, Swedish newspapers that can reinforce the fact that the media content are already unequal from a gender point of view. What inspired me was the possibility of such differences in accordance with gender theory.

I also wanted to examine if these possible differences varied when different kinds of newspapers and editions were compared.

A quantitative content analysis was used and during one week in late autumn 2007 the articles in both the paper and the Internet editions of four newspapers were counted and classified on the basis of the sex of the journalist, topics covered and ways of dealing with the topic. Two of the studied newspapers have a nationwide coverage and the other two are small local newspapers.

Qualitative interviews with both executive editors and journalists working on the studied newspapers were also carried out.

I found that certain topics and ways of writing are typically female ones and other typically male ones. But I also found intriguing similarities between the female and male journalists writing. Comparing the different kinds of newspapers and the different kinds of editions that I studied, several variations were found. In the local newspapers the female journalists did get published to the same extent as their male colleagues but for one of the national newspapers this was not the case.
