Abstract [en]

The 2018 parliamentary election in Sweden has been widely reported in media. News articles regarding politics becomes the public insight into the political sphere and media possesses great impact on people’s opinions. Journalistic representation and linguistic use become central because inaccurate representation and unequal portrayal of male and female politicians contribute to and maintain social constructive stereotypes and gender norms. Therefore we find it important to review and analyze use of words and underlying meanings in Swedish newspapers.

The purpose of this essay is to study how the Swedish media presented Swedish party leaders before the parliamentary election in 2018, from a gender perspective. The main focus is to examine how the party leaders are differently portrayed depending on whether they are male or female. Our research question is:

● How do journalists write about Swedish party leaders from a gender perspective?

Our theoretical framework of this study is built on theories about gender roles, how they define male and female stereotypes and how they differ. To answer our research question, we used a critical discourse analysis based on 80 articles from the newspapers Dagens Nyheter, Svenska Dagbladet, Expressen and Aftonbladet.

The main result show that there are differences between how women and men are presented och portrayed. They are both described by stereotypic gender roles but women are more often described in a critical and negative way.
