Girls who skate, rebels of today : identity through separate organization within a subculture (English)
Abstract [en]

With this essay we have the intention to develop knowledge about how girls are creating an identity through a subculture as the Skateboard community and through separate organization. Rising from the feministic history is the idea that women require a private sphere to be able to grow as individuals. We have the intention to research how the girls are experiencing the growth into an identity as a skateboarder in a male dominant arena and how the separate organization works for them. We have used a qualitative way of interviewing and the amount of interviews was six. The result of this study indicates that the girls are creating their identity through a collective identity and the separate organization is not enough to provide for their needs of mark of identification.

Abstract [sv]

Med denna uppsats har vi intentionen att utveckla kunskap om hur tjejer skapar sin identitet genom skateboard som subkultur samt genom särorganisering. Sprungen ur feministisk historia kommer idén gällande att kvinnor behöver en privat sfär för att kunna växa som individer. Vi har intentionen att undersöka hur tjejer upplever skapandet av sin skateboardidentitet i en manligt dominerad miljö och hur särorganisering fungerar för dem. Vi har använt sex kvalitativa intervjuer. Resultatet av denna studie indikerar att tjejer skapar sin identitet genom kollektiv identitet och att särorganisering i sig inte är tillräckligt för att tillhandahålla det de behöver gällande sitt identitetsskapande.
