Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate how male and female is produced in the literary children’s literature that is found in a Municipal preschool. My issues are the following:

  • Which sex dominates as a main character in the preschools literary books?
  • What type of properties is attributed to the characters?
  • What type of clothes is portrayed on the books characters?

I performed a quantitative study of 136 children’s books. I used Maria Nikolajevas perceptions of stereotypical male and female properties to analyze my empirical data. My conclusions are that male characters dominates as main characters, most of the male characters in the children’s books presents stereotypical male properties while the female characters statistics presents almost equal results regarding gender-neutral properties, gender-stereotypical properties and stereotypical male properties and that both gender-stereotypical and gender-neutral clothes appears in the books.
