    Doing gender' in the wild berry industry: Transforming the role of Thai women in rural Sweden 1980-20122016In: The European Journal of Women's Studies, ISSN 1350-5068, E-ISSN 1461-7420, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 169-184Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Doing gender' has often been used as the theoretical entrance for research on gender issues in the social sciences. However, research has been accused of using the concept in a ceremonial' way, treating gendered structures as static. In response to this claim, this article investigates the process of hierarchization', or how gendered and racial hierarchies occur through everyday practices and political and economic contexts in the rural, wild berry industry in contemporary Sweden. The industry has gone through a thorough transformation, from irregular and small-scale production to regularized and large-scale production, which has affected the intersection of gender and racial structures. In particular, Thai women have gone from being active participants both as entrepreneurs and as workers, to working under native men, or being passive receivers of men's remittances. The mechanisms behind the intersection of gender and racial structures are a complex interplay of economic, social and institutional factors, which act on nested global, national and translocal scales.

    Gender equality in Swedish film policy: Radical interpretations and ‘unruly’ women2017In: The European Journal of Women's Studies, ISSN 1350-5068, E-ISSN 1461-7420, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 336-350Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    The invisible carers: Framing domestic work(ers) in gender equality policies in Spain2007In: The European Journal of Women's Studies, ISSN 1350-5068, E-ISSN 1461-7420, Vol. 14, no 3, p. 265-280Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores how paid domestic work is framed in state policies and discourses, drawing upon theoretical discussions on gender, welfare and global care chains. Based on a case study of the political debate on the ‘reconciliation of personal, family and work life’ in Spain, the author argues that dominant policy frames relate gender inequality to women’s unpaid domestic work and care, while domestic workers are essentially the invisible ‘other’. Empowering and disempowering frames are discussed; domestic workers are mainly constructed as a solution to the care problem and only marginally as subjects and rights-holders. The overall aim is to examine how public policies legitimize and (re)produce social inequalities related to gender, class and nationality.

    Rainbow coloured dots and rebellious old ladies: The gurlesque in two contemporary Swedish comic books2018In: The European Journal of Women's Studies, ISSN 1350-5068, E-ISSN 1461-7420, Vol. 25, no 3, p. 371-383Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The term gurlesque refers to an aesthetics that mixes feminism, femininity, the grotesque and the cute. This article explores how contemporary Swedish feminist comic books do gurlesque theory with the aim of contributing to the theoretical conversation about feminine aesthetics and gurlesque. The study focuses on two contemporary Swedish comic books, Jag ar din flickvan nu (I Am Your Girlfriend Now) (2006) by Nina Hemmingsson and Allt kommer bli bra (Everything Will Be Fine) (2013) by Lisa Ewald. The article views gurlesque as a queer aesthetics, as a form of wilful misinterpretation and taunting of perceptions of femininity. The word gurlesque draws from the word girl', and questions the connection between girlhood and young age from a queer perspective. Although the gurlesque is rooted in images of girlhood, it has the potential to grasp femininities of all ages.
