Abstract [en]

Do we have different expectations ofmale and female politicians regarding parenting when young children are involved? If so, what are the implications for political citizenship? The aim of this article was to examine the construction of parenting and gender in the portrayal in Swedish print media of high-ranking politicians Gustav Fridolin, leader of the Green Party, and Birgitta Ohlsson, a Liberal Party member of the Swedish Government. The study covers reporting from 2010 up to the end of 2012. Methodologically, a discourse analysis based on discourse theory was performed, implying a textual analysis of 39 articles through gender theoretical lenses. Although fathers were seen as primary caregivers in some of the articles, a recurrent phenomenon wasthe repetition in Swedish newspaper articles of the idea that mothers rather than fathers should be considered primary caregivers. Furthermore, since Ohlsson was criticized for not choosing parental leave and the critical remarks about Fridolin were instead about him choosing parental leave, the different expectations on women as mothers and men as fathers in politics imply that even in a Nordic country context young children are a greater obstacle for female rather than for male politicians. Thus, gender inequalities between women’s and men’s political citizenship continue to persist in Sweden

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this article is to examine and compare the construction of a supposednew masculinity ideal, “the new man”, in relation to political leadership, andto interpret how the gender norms there within affect the credibility as a politician.The study extends to the reporting from 2010 in the daily newspaper DagensNyheter about three Swedish male elite politicians with various party affiliation andideologies. Our findings shows that flexibility is a prominent new-man-marker, thatthe relationship between flexibility and credibility as a male politician is complexand that in a Swedish/Nordic context the new man is constructed as gender equal.One conclusion is that some male politicians benefit more than others – who maybe pushing the boundaries (too far) for what may be considered as masculine –from being positioned within the discourse of the new man.
