The new woman : Rhetorical features in arguments for voting rights at LKPR and the Suffragette’s (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to study the similarities and differences in the rhetoric of the Swedish organisation” LKPR” and the English Suffragette’s. How they present their idea of the political vote for women, what kind of metaphors are used e.tc. The study is based on the voting women’s newspapers, as well as letters and a speech. The study is also supposed to discuss the various reasons why the militant methods and rhetoric in the democratization from the suffragette’s in England did not influence the voting women of Sweden in a more comprehensive way, and why Swedish activist did not use the militant methods. This has many complex explanations. The rhetoric of the suffragettes was far more militant and associated with the concept of war. In Sweden, it was more about motherhood, family and home, the Swedish activist did not embrace the militant methods of the suffragette’s. That’s partwise because of the concept of femininity, the fear of further conflicts, dependence on men etc. Even if the two organisations were distinctly different, one thing they shared was the concept of “a new kind of woman”. It was a woman who broke the social structures, gender structures and in some cases even laws to get what they wanted. It was a woman who no longer pleased with what they were assigned, but now looked for what they considered to be entitled to. It was a new type of woman who came to stay.
