Abstract [en]


Throughout history men and women have been given roles and obligations in the space of family and in the space of society. One of the changes when it comes to equality is that women to a larger extend take place in a male space. Elk hunt in Sweden is one of those spaces that have been dominated by men but where women now are taking part. In this qualitative interview study gender contract as well as historicity of word and language are taken into account from feministic and postcolonial theory perspectives to an analysis women’s participation and experience of elk hunt. The author points out that male connections are essential in the woman’s entry to the elk hunt. There is also a difference in how younger and older generation of women describe their participation in the elk hunt. The older women don’t describe themselves as an active part of the elk hunt even though they have the main responsibility of handling the meat while the younger women describe this as an active part of the elk hunt.
