Men and women in social science textbooks :  - a qualitative content analysis based on gender analysis (English)
Abstract [en]

In this essay, textbooks in social sciences at secondary school have been studied based on the school's base and assignment. The purpose has been to study how men and women are represented and portrayed and how gender is produced in the textbooks. In addition, I have tried to see if there has any change in recent years and, if so, how it looks. The study has been based on a gender analysis and a model based on Yvonne Hirdman's gender system. To perform the study a qualitative content analysis has been made on the texts, images and captions from the textbooks.

The result shows that men are more represented than women. Often, it's the pictures or the underlying meanings in the texts that weigh over to the man's advantage. According to the gender system it shows that the sexes are kept to a certain extent apart where women and men do different things. In particular, men do more things and are found in more arenas than women. The man is the norm. However, during the period for this study, they are making small changes over time which makes the books more equal.
