Abstract [en]

Sweden is seen as one of the world’s most feminist societies. In January 2009 all grounds of discrimination were merged into a common law; Diskrimineringslagen. This paper examines representations of gender discrimination, linked to feminist perspectives, in the Parliamentary debate on Sweden’s new discrimination legislation through a discourse analysis. The aim is to find out how the perception of gender discrimination may be linked to attitudes towards the proposal of the new discrimination legislation. The findings are that two competing constructions of gender discrimination can be found in the empirical material; it’s either seen as a ground of discrimination as more fundamental or equivalent to other grounds of discrimination. The conclusions are that the perception of gender discrimination affects whether the proposal of the new discrimination legislation is seen as a good solution or a problematic solution. The representations of gender discrimination are linked to feminist perspectives in a clearer way in the discourse where the proposal of the new discrimination legislation is seen as a problematic solution; in this discourse gender discrimination is rather associated with taking structural gender relations in consideration than a problem associated with the formal regulation.
