Gender Research in Sweden 2009
For once, two years have passed since the last issue of Gender Research in Sweden. The articles in this issue have then been collected for a longer period of time than usual. Swedish gender research is more comprehensive and broader than ever, which makes it impossible to give an exhaustive description of all that has happened since then. Nevertheless, we present some examples of research and research policy.
The texts cover a broad selection of topics, all of them illustrating that a gender perspective is needed in virtually all areas – in school, as in sports and the army. Most articles in this issue are about conditions in Sweden, as Swedish gender research is largely focused on these matters. The global dimension begins, though, to gain further ground.
