Abstract

In this study we have analyzed a television news show in Sweden for children – Lilla Aktuellt

– from a gender perspective. We have analyzed the program both from quantitative and

qualitative aspects. In the quantitative analysis of twelve episodes we compared females and

males in the following respects: number of participants and for how long the participants were

allowed to speak. In the qualitative analysis of three episodes we aimed to discover what

different roles and stereotypes the participants displayed.

We have in our study applied the theory about gender and the theory of representation,

stereotypes and identity with the aim to find out if the girls/women and the boys/men

appearing in the programs were ascribed different characteristics and attributes and if they

were divided in different spheres.

Our study shows that the allotment between the genders in Lilla Aktuellt is very even. In our

quantitative analysis the participants were approximately 51 percent girls and women and 49

percent boys and men. The same allocation between females and males applied when it came

to for how long the participants were allowed to speak. In our qualitative analysis we found

that the children and the adults did represent different stereotypes and played different roles

but that there were hardly any differences in this respect between the genders.
