Gender Equality in Sweden: Are the Religious More Patriarchal?
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Sociology.
2014 (English)In: Journal of family issues, ISSN 0192-513X, E-ISSN 1552-5481, Vol. 35, no 7, 892-908 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

We focus in this article on contexts within which religiosity (the intensity of religious commitment) reinforces more patriarchal family values and those in which it does not, and perhaps even strengthens egalitarian family values. Using data for 1999 and 2003 from the Swedish longitudinal study, Young Adult Panel Survey, we examine the relationship between religiosity and several measures of attitudes and behaviors related to gender equality in the public and private spheres. We find for most religious denominations, greater religiosity is linked with more patriarchal views about the balance of men's and women's roles in the home. Among members of the Church of Sweden (formerly the Swedish State Church), however, this is not the case. No differences by religiosity were found in attitudes for gender equality in the public sphere of work.
