Huddinge kommun from a gender perspective : a picture and text analyze of the internal magazine for the staff working within Huddinge kommuns public administration (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to critically examine and analyze how the informal performance about masculinities and femininity are being expressed and produced by the text and pictures in Huddinge kommuns internal magazine for the staff working within the public administration. The concrete questions are:

By which patterns constructs the performance of gender in Huddinge kommuns internal magazine for the staff working within the public administration?

Are the femininity and masculinities being expressed in a static way or have it changed in Huddinge kommuns internal magazine for the staff working within the public administration throw the examined years 1985, 1995 and 2006?

A quantitative and qualitative method is used. The point of departure is organization theory in a gender perspective. With the gender organization theory we examine the structures, leadership, symbolics and changes through the examined years. Our perspective is a social contructionism.

Our conclusion is that the patterns about femininity and masculinity changes through the years, but the most significant changes are made by women. That conclusion is in spite of the facts that the quantitative data shows that women have increased by the numbers of pictures.

The qualitative examination confirms that masculinity is still the norm and therefore women do change more than the man does.
