    Explaining the Swedish ‘housewife era’ of 1930–1970: joint utility maximisation or renewed patriarchy?2017In: Scandinavian Economic History Review, ISSN 0358-5522, E-ISSN 1750-2837, Vol. 65, no 2, p. 169-188Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study shows that the Swedish ‘housewife era’ roughly occurred in 1930–1970. During the 1950s, the ratio of women’s worked hours to men’s worked hours reached a low point. In the early 1970s, it rose to above 50%. We argue that models of joint utility maximisation, assuming equal gender power relations unrestrained by cultural and institutional settings, cannot alone explain this era. The two principal structural mechanisms behind the rise of the breadwinner household were the decline of the farm household and the increased proportion of married women. Both weakened the bargaining position of women. Three results in our study weaken the claims of the joint utility maximisation model. Firstly, marriage was much more important than motherhood in determining the probability of women’s labour force participation, although the age of the child is then not taken into account. Secondly, the labour force participation of married women was similar across different social strata outside of the farm and top income households, indicating a prevalent capitalist patriarchal structure. Thirdly, women’s leisure was valued less than men’s, demonstrating that the preferences of the husband were prioritised over those of the wife.

    New estimates of time use in Sweden 1950–20122017In: Journal of European Economic History, ISSN 0391-5115, E-ISSN 2499-8281, Vol. XLVI, no 2, p. 77-113Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The official statistics on GDP and the labour market exclude unpaid domestic services. Yet there are good theoretical reasons why historians should study unpaid work. This paper reconstructs annual estimates of time use in Sweden from 1950 to 2012 among women and men. It finds substantial convergence between the genders in time use from the 1960s to the early 1980s. During the pe-riod of inquiry, the gender difference in total working time vanished. The double burden for women did not increase when they entered the labour market. The reduction in the time women spent on unpaid work is explained about equally by the shortening of the total amount of unpaid work and by increasing male participation inhousehold chores. In 1950-1963, the reduction was explained mainly by the decline in the making and mending of clothes at home and the spread of domestic appliances. In the 1963–1984 period, instead, it was due chiefly to men’s greater participation in household work. These mechanisms were largely historically contingent, suggesting that it is impossible to single out just one factor to explain why Sweden today has less gender inequality than other countries.

    Servants and Bourgeois Life in Urban Sweden in the Early Twentieth Century2010In: Scandinavian Journal of History, ISSN 0346-8755, E-ISSN 1502-7716, Vol. 35, no 4, p. 427-450Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    By 1900, most Swedish servants had a rural background. They had migrated to the city from the countryside to perform domestic service in private households. Here they met bourgeois ideals of the comfortable home where the masters could demand home-cooked meals, clean clothes and pleasant surroundings. Servants were needed in order to fulfil this ideal. Yet, the number of domestic servants declined strongly in urban Sweden during the first half of the Twentieth Century. This development is often called ‘the servant crisis’. We explore the background to the scarcity of servants, the relationships between masters and servants, and the role of servants in creating economic and cultural distinctions. We analyze the various adaptations of bourgeois households to the decline of domestic servants. Qualitative sources from private letters, diaries and autobiographies are combined with quantitative evidence from censuses.

    Abstract [en]

    To write the life of another is quite a complex matter. Apparently, in the academic field the biography as a genre has been questioned. While Barthes and Foucault suggested the Death of the Author in the 1960s, the ‘biographical turn’ has made its way back to popularity in the 21st century. This article examines how to write a biography with scientific and critical ambitions. The article concludes that the biographical approach can offer a deeper understanding of the individual in a historical context. However, by using theoretical and methodological tools the genre can be improved.

    En osynlig företagshistoria: Direktörshustrun i svenskt näringsliv2012Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Idag diskuteras ofta kvinnliga företagsledare och kvinnors representation i företagsstyrelser. Men det finns också en annan grupp kvinnor som under lång tid har stått i skymundan. Denna bok behandlar ett antal direktörsfruar i svenskt näringsliv under 1900-talets första hälft. Livet som direktörshustru präglades ofta av makens verksamhet. Hon förväntades ta emot affärspartners i hemmet, agera värdinna och ge råd när maken behövde hennes stöd. Direktörshustrun levde i skuggan av företaget, men var samtidigt en viktig del av verksamheten på ett informellt plan. Hon var medveten om att företaget/banken ofta prioriterades framför hennes vardagsbekymmer. I boken studeras ett antal direktörsfruar med koppling till de kända företagsfamiljerna Wallenberg och Broström med flera. Genom att belysa kvinnornas möjlighet till inflytande i hem och näringsliv ges en alternativ bild av företagshistorien, så som den gestaltades utifrån hustruns horisont. Att studera direktörsfruar är relevant för att förstå kvinnors osynliggörande över tid i stora organisationer. Det kan också delvis förklara varför den manliga normen har dominerat näringslivet.

    Abstract [sv]

    Förra året, 2011, jubilerade De Danske Skytteforeninger (DDS), det hade då gått 150 år sedan organisationen bildades. DDS, som därmed är Danmarks äldsta idrotts- och fritidsorganisation, omfattar idag cirka 73.000 aktiva, fördelade på 870 klubbar som i sin tur är underställda 15 regionala föreningar. Inför jubileet har man låtit sammanställa föreningarnas historia i tre böcker av vilka forumet fick den sista för recension – De Danske Skytteforeninger gennem 150 år: Del III 1992–2011. Under konstant forandring (DDS). Den är författad av Erling Madsen, som ansvarar för PR och kommunikation på DDS. Vi gav boken till Therese Nordlund Edvinsson, som skrev sin avhandling om jaktklubben Orren 1890–1960. Vår recensent konstaterar att man nog bör läsa alla tre delarna för att få sammanhanget klart för sig, och hon framhåller att det inte handlar om en forskningsskrift. Givet det bjuder den tredje delen ändå på en del intressant läsning, till exempel om kvinnorna inom skyttesporten och om satsningen på att värva barn och ungdomar till sporten.

    The transformation from business leader to black grouse male: The animal symbolism of the King Black Grouse Hunting Club.

    This article deals with role-playing within the Swedish business elite as a part of developing an alternative identity. More specifically, the article analyzes a hunting club’s attitude to animals. A majority of the members in King Black Grouse Hunting Club were corporate managers. In the club the members assumed the role of black grouse males and imitated the bird’s behaviour. The Swedish business elite embraced masculinity and white het- erosexuality. For these men, role-playing was a way to act frivolously and to create a new masculine culture that reminded of homosociality. They described themselves as men who were able to attract and hunt animals, as well as women. The wives of the members were compared to the black grouse hen.

    King Black Grouse Hunting Society was founded in 1890 and terminated in 1960. The members frequently met for small game hunting. After the hunt, members attended secret ceremonies as well as parties. The hunt was an exclusive show. Expeditions in the woods were dramatized with fictional elements. The transformation from business leaders to black grouse cocks were not just an identity shift. It also reflected the members’ attitudes to- wards animals and nature. Their sense of humour, sexual allusions, and ag- gressiveness were ingredients in their encounter with the wilderness. In the 1950s, the younger generation of the hunting club found it difficult to con- tinue the older members’ traditions. They found the celebration of the black grouse male ridiculous. Overall, this affected the male bonding culture, and rendered the adaption of the members’ alternative identity difficult.

    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the role of wives in the Swedish business elite in the early 1900s, through letters and diaries. The Swedish case is particularly interesting, since the country has a long tradition of successful corporate families. The corporate wife was expected to perform duties linked to the family business. To get more directly involved in the firm, the husband had to give his permission. By offering support the wife could gain tacit knowledge of her husband’s work. Her emotional efforts influenced the achievements of the family business, sometimes even its survival.

    Abstract [sv]

    I det svenska brukssamhället fanns en stark knytning mellan företaget, ”bruket”, och lokalsamhället. En stor del av den sociala och ekonomiska omsorgen ombesörjdes i paternalistisk anda av bruksägaren och hans familj. Hur förändrades detta av industrialiseringens snabba expansion? Hur såg relationen ut mellan storföretagen och lokalsamhället? Fanns det över huvud taget någon sådan relation? Kunde den utformas på olika sätt, och vad påverkade i så fall detta?

    "Jag riktigt önskar att jag vore en stor skeppsredare också, så skulle du få se på konkurrens!": Om hustrun i svenskt näringsliv: ett nytt forskningsprojekt2007Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Svenskt näringsliv har ofta dominerats av män på de ledande posterna. Det är framför allt män som har varit företagsledare eller bankdirektörer, medan kvinnor under lång tid har haft begränsade karriärmöjligheter i näringslivet. I detta paper presenteras ett nystartat post-doc projekt som synliggör en tidigare nästan bortglömd grupp nämligen – näringslivets fruar. Tidigare forskning har ofta sett hustrun som ovidkommande för företagets eller bankens verksamhet. Det finns emellertid all anledning att närmare studera hustrun och hennes funktion i näringslivet. Vem var hon? Vad gjorde hon för företagets eller bankens räkning? Hur hanterade hon dessa plikter? Vilka nätverk hade hon?

    Som hustru ansågs kvinnan ofta vara en del av organisationen, genom att hon förväntades ta emot affärspartners i hemmet och agera värdinna vid middagar. Dessa aspekter har sällan analyserats närmare i svensk företagsforskning. Genom att lyfta fram ”hemmets organisation och ledare” problematiseras arbetsdelningen mellan män och kvinnor under 1900-talet utifrån ett historiskt perspektiv. Den ekonomiska och sociala aspekten av hustruns möjligheter att agera i näringslivet är angelägen att utreda, med tanke på att hustrun var oavlönad. Projektet använder ett varierat källmaterial bestående av korrespondens, dagböcker och tidigare outnyttjat material.
