Kvinnodominerade och mansdominerade yrken - En studie utifrån icke traditionella yrkesval
Halmstad University, School of Social and Health Sciences (HOS).
2008 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [sv]

In this thesis I am going to study how women experience working in a male-dominated occupation and how men experience working in a female-dominated occupation. I have chosen a qualitative method, interviewing four women and four men. By using this method I have gained a deeper understanding of what it is like having a non-traditional occupation. In the background I have looked into the unequal distribution of power between the sexes as well as the entrance of women on the labour-market, where the law of equality has had a major impact on the strive towards a more equal distribution according to sex. The theoretical part includes different theories where gender is focused, both when it comes to the biological differences as well as the segregation of sexes that prevails in society and here socialization heavily influences the choice of a vocation. The result is based on the interviewees’ accounts of how they experience working in a non-traditional occupation. It is in this part of the essay that I have tried to find the underlying causes of why the persons interviewed have chosen these professions and what positive and negative experiences it has given them.
