Abstract [en]

Women are underrepresented as managers in the Swedish labor market. The economy branch isone of the most equal branches in the private sector, with 50,8 percent employed women.Though, only 39 percent of the managers are women. The aim of this study is to investigate whywomen are underrepresented as managers in the economy branch within the private sector. Thisqualitative interview study is based on five semi-structured interviews of female managers in theeconomy branch in order to grasp a deeper understanding as to why women areunderrepresented, obstacles that can occur in female managers´ career as well as the impact ofthose obstacles. The results show that the male-dominated culture that exists in manager roles aswell as norms and stereotypes that exist regarding women and leadership, create obstacles forwomen and makes it more difficult for them to get and keep a manager position. Additionally,those obstacles minimize women´s dedication to climbing up in an organization's hierarchy.
