Gender equality in Swedish film policy: Radical interpretations and "unruly women"
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Political Science.
(English)In: The European Journal of Women's Studies, ISSN 1350-5068, E-ISSN 1461-7420, 1-15 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Epub ahead of print
Abstract [en]

Gender quotas have been a crucial part of Swedish film policy since 2006 and have resulted in an increasing number of films with women directors, producers and screenwriters. However, films with women directors are still likely to have smaller budgets and less money for marketing and distribution than films with men directors. This article suggests that, in the context of film governance, gender quotas are discursively constructed in ways that circumscribe the opportunities to change current gender relations. Nevertheless, gender quotas have been used as a springboard for more radical interpretations to improve women’s conditions and challenge the foundation of the governance regime. The article also explores the idea that bottom-up representational claims are necessary to ensure that quotas and the inclusion of women result in women’s voices being heard. Such measures require the governance regime to be sensitive to voices that deviate from the norm.
