Abstract [en]

This essay focuses on men’s construction of feminism and gender and views on equality between the sexes. The purpose of the essay is met through interviews with eight men on their thoughts and constructions of these issues. The answers from the interviewed men were analysed with a radical feminist and gender perspective approach. The sources used in the analysis of the material, in the aspect of gender, were from the work of Judith Butler, Robert W. Connell and Yvonne Hirdman. The conclusion that can be drawn from this essay is that men view feminism as something positive but feminists as negative which is in line with results from previously published studies. Regarding gender the interviewed men were unfamiliar with the term and they discussed gender in terms of masculinity as something they felt did not apply to them. Equality between the sexes is by the interviewed men only pointed out and discussed as inequality in the labour market. This combined with a radical feminist analysis is interpreted as a denial of a feminist analysis that regards women as oppressed in all aspects of society not just in the labour market.
