    The gendered division of labour: how can we assess the quality of employment and care policy from a gender equality perspective?2009In: Benefits: a Journal of Social Security Research, Policy And Practice, ISSN 0962-7898, E-ISSN 1741-7325, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 263-275Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Evaluating the quality of employment and care policy in relation to gender equality is important given the continuing inequalities between men and women in paid and unpaid work. However, assessment raises dilemmas: quality according to what criteria; quality for whom; and quality of what? It is proposed here that good quality means transformation in gender relations towards an equal distribution of paid and unpaid work, equal pay and de-segregation; that sensitivity to differences between women is required, but not the adoption of different quality standards; and that working towards the goal of transformation demands consideration of several interconnected policy arenas. Assessing quality is difficult; but it is possible - and it is crucial to achieving gender equality.

    Interrogating violence against women and state violence policy through gendered intersectionalities and intersectional gender: local, national and transnational contexts2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper arises from collective work within the 5-year Swedish Research Council project, “Feminist Theorizings of Intersectionality, Transversal Dialogues and New Synergies”, organised within GEXcel Collegium for Advanced Transdisciplinary Gender Studies (Örebro-Karlstad-Linköping Universities), with specific focus on violence seen as inequalities (Hearn, Sociological Review, 2012; Current Sociology, 2013). The larger project examines intersectionality in gender studies, in relation and dialogue with the diverse, sometimes conflictual, theoretical and political positions in feminist debates (Walby, Armstrong, Strid, 2012; Strid et al. Social Politics, forthcoming). The project is designed against this background of rich, diverse feminist traditions for theorizing of intersectionality, and informed by tensions between these traditions. This paper takes up this challenge in terms of violence, especially violence against women, and state policy thereon, addressing the place of violence in contemporary state regulation and intersectional gender relations. The paper examines the complex, situated and spatial relationship between theorizing on violence against women and state policy on such violence (Hearn and McKie, Policy & Politics, 2008; Violence Against Women, 2010). This focus continues feminist traditions on multiple linkages between practice, politics, policy and theory, in local, national and transnational contexts. More specifically, drawing on extensive comparative European data at local, national and transnational, it explores the concepts of gendered intersectionalities and intersectional gender by examining how multiple inequalities, long been prominent in feminist activism and intervention on violence, are made (in)visible and conceptualized in state gender-based violence policy and debates. Attention is paid especially to tendencies to degendering strategies in violence research and state policy. A key aim of the paper is to investigate how analysis can be a starting point for assessing if, how and to what extent the inclusion of multiple inequalities could increase the quality of policy, for both reducing and stopping violence, and assisting those subject to violence.

    Interrogating violence against women and state violence policy: Gendered intersectionalities and the quality of policy in The Netherlands, Sweden and the UK2016In: Current Sociology, ISSN 0011-3921, E-ISSN 1461-7064, Vol. 64, no 4, p. 551-567Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article builds on feminist scholarship on intersectionality to address violence against women, and state policy thereon. It takes up the challenge of analysing the complex, situated and spatial relationship between theorizing on violence against women and state policy on such violence. Drawing on extensive comparative European data, it explores the relations of gender and intersectionality, conceptualized as gendered intersectionalities, by examining how multiple inequalities are made visible and invisible in state policy and debates in the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK. Attention is paid to different forms of gendered intersectionalities in policy, for example, tendencies to degender violence against women. A key aim of the article is to investigate how comparative analysis can be a starting point for assessing if, how and to what extent the inclusion of multiple inequalities could increase the quality of policy, for both reducing and stopping violence, and assisting those subject to violence.

    Gendered interests in the European union: the European women's lobby and the organisation and representation of women's interests2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Gendered Interests and the European Union. The European Women’s Lobby and the Organisation and Representation of Women's Interests. On a general level this thesis concerns the changed and changing institutional conditions for gender equality in Europe and the organisation and institutionalisation of women’s social and political interests at the EU level. I ask in what ways political structures and authorities enable and/or obstruct women to generate, sustain and control their presence in politics as women. I explore how the EU institutions structure and provide opportunities and constraints for women to mobilise and organise to act as an authorised party vis-a-vis and within the EU political system. How does it come that women, as a collective, are not only recognised as a politically relevant group but also legitimised to act and be present as women in an organised relationship with the EU system’s main authorities? The presence comes in the form of the European Women’s Lobby (EWL), an EU level and EU wide non-governmental umbrella organisation which represents some 4000 women’s organisations on multiple levels of the EU. The EWL is not the first example of women organising on the EU level, but it is the first of its kind. The EWL was initiated by women from within the European Commission and is funded mainly via a grant from the Commission. The EWL’s objectives include the endorsement of equality between women and men and to ensure that measures to promote gender equality and women’s rights are taken into account and mainstreamed in all EU policy. Using material gathered through interviews, observations and official documentation I study the structure of the European Women’s Lobby; the participation of the EWL in EU politics; the relation between the EWL and the EU institutions; the relation between the EWL’s member organisations; and the forms the representation of women’s organised social and political interests at EU level can take. I argue that in the specific political system of the EU, organised interests in civil society and the EWL perform the functions of input, and participate in output and feedback. Organised interests function as intermediaries between the national and European levels. Organised interests strive to gain influence; the Commission, as a political authority, strives to gain legitimacy of its policy-making through the input and output of representative organised interests. As a consequence of what I argue is a corporatist policymaking style of the Commission the EWL has become increasingly institutionalised. The trade off is that while the EWL has enjoyed the Commission’s support and funding to constitute an established EU level platform from which women can formulate, mobilise and pursue their interests, the EWL has must organise and take control over the interests aggregated from its member organisations and over the form of the member organisations. The very structure of the EWL can be seen as part of the price the EWL has to pay to be granted somewhat of a representative monopoly in terms of opportunities to influence EU policy-making through the various channels of consultation. In this context, I argue that the representativeness of organised interests is key. There is no electoral basis legitimising the policy-making of the Commission, instead, this basis is constituted by organised interests. Paradoxically, this holds the potential for increasing the legitimacy of the Commission, something which increasing transparency has failed to do. It is no exaggeration to claim that the EWL offers a remarkable EU level platform for women to act and pursue their interests as women. By studying the actual impact of EU level policy-making and politics on various ways, this thesis argues that the very existence of the EWL can be understood as being in the interest of women.

    Patriarchy Fights Back: Violent Opposition to Gender Equality in Online Contexts2018In: Varieties of Opposition to Gender Equality in Europe / [ed] Mieke Verloo, London: Routledge, 2018, 1Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In contrast to the wealth of studies on progress towards gender equality, opposition to gender equality is rarely studied, which makes it difficult to understand the positive and negative dynamics of gender equality as a political project.

    The first of its kind, this timely collection examines the potential and challenges of our current scholarship on understanding opposition to gender+ equality in Europe. Divided into three parts, Mieke Verloo and her team of international experts begin Varieties of Opposition to Gender Equality in Europe by theorizing the dynamics of opposition to gender equality policies in Europe. Part Two highlights oppositional actors (politicians, governments, citizens, policy makers, churches) and political arenas (parliament, courts, Internet), as well as different and opposing visions of gender+ equality. Part Three concludes with a framework for understanding oppositional dynamics on gender equality change.

    Setting the agenda for future research, this book will be useful for students of gender and politics, social movements, European integration, and policy studies, as well as for high-level policymakers, students, and feminist activists alike. It will be an inspiration to thinkers and doers and to scholars and political actors.

    Voice and visibility: the inclusion of multiple inequalities in policymaking processes2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper examines the inclusion and exclusion of multiple inequalities in the policymaking process of gender-based violence policy in Sweden and in Britain. The paper asks what happens at the state/civil society interface when gender equality projects are confronted with other equality projects. Empirically, this is analysed by studying the ways in which women’s civil society organisations organise to gain a voice in, and impact on, gender-based violence policy. The comparison between the relatively social democratic Sweden and the more neoliberal Britain is particularly interesting in the context of the economic crisis, and where it has been argued that neoliberalism constitutes a threat to feminism. Preliminary results indicate that there are temporary strategic hierarchies of inequalities; women’s civil society organisations take turns in taking the lead and in backing up that lead in policymaking processes, indicating that there is a future for feminist, intersectional, coalitions

    Feminist theorizing of intersectionality2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper arises from collective work within the 5-year Swedish Research Council project, “Feminist Theorizings of Intersectionality”, organised within the GEXcel Collegium for Advanced Transdisciplinary Gender Studies (Örebro-Karls-tad-Linköping Universities), with a specific focus on the equality architecture, and in part from the EU FP6 project QUING.

    The whole larger project examines intersectionality as a central concept in con-temporary gender studies, in relation and dialogue with the diverse, and some-times conflictual, theoretical and political stances in feminist debates. The project is designed against the background of the rich and diverse feminist traditions for theorizing of intersectionality, but it is also informed by the tensions between these traditions.

    This paper analyses and compares how equality architectures (Walby, Arm-strong, Strid, 2012, Social Politics) in Europe are restructured and challenged by the developments related to intersectionality and diversity, and the implications of the restructuring for theories of intersectionality . It links concepts of equality and intersectionality to policy frames and frameworks . It examines how the chal-lenges of intersectionality are reflected and dealt with “on the ground”, in practical equality architectures on national and institutional level, e .g . in governments and universities, and the implications for gender equality and for the quality of the gender equality architecture . It takes the merger of equality institutions in Euro-pean countries as case studies and analyses the implications of the mergers for theory and practice.

    Preliminary conclusions based on previous research (Walby, Armstrong, Strid, 2012, Social Politics, QUING) suggest that even though the quality of the architec-ture may have improved by the inclusion of multiple inequalities, there may be a reduction of quality in terms of resources . For theory, preliminary conclusions suggest that intersectionality as mutual shaping (Walby, Armstrong, Strid, 2012, Sociology) may be a more successful approach to theory and practice than the often-prioritised mutual constitution

    Feminist dialogism on intersectionality, theory and practice2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This presentation emerges from the joint research project Feminist Theorizings of Intersectionality, Transversal Dialogues and New Synergies, funded by The Swedish Research Council, where Sofia Strid and Anna Lundberg have set out to not only compare notes, but to explore and take seriously the challenge posed by transversal dialogue as a method. What happens when research and researchers, over a substantial period of time, establish and entertain an enduring dialogue, focusing on chosen aspects and areas of feminist theory and feminist research? Strid and Lundberg are both active in the field of feminist research, however the differences between them regarding epistemological home, theoretical playground, methodological toolbox and empirical stage are quite distinct. These differences make the dialogue exciting and challenging. The project involves face-to-face and online meetings, discussions, text exchanges and long e-mail conversations as follow-ups. Conceptually, the focus is intersectionality and the way in which the concept has travelled and evolved in contemporary feminist theory and research. In order to analyse the on-going dialogue between Strid and Lundberg on (amongst other things) intersectionality, and in order to elaborate a way of understanding, describing and conceptualizing the on-going process, Strid and Lundberg has turned to Mikhail Bakhtin’s work on dialogism. With this paper and in order to discuss and problematise the field of feminist theory as an authoritative discourse, Strid and Lundberg bring in yet another of Bakhtin’s concepts: heteroglossia. In this discussion, the clashes and interventions between theory and practice will function as a temporary touchstone.

    Doing Intersectionality in Gender-Based Violence: The Dynamics of Inclusion, Opposition, Coalition and Power2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper asks how gender-based violence politics is inclusionary or exclusionary of other inequality projects. In understanding violence and gender equality as projects, the paper highlights how the boundaries between policy, implementation, and social movements are blurred, contributing to a new way of analysing gender-based violence politics.

    The paper distinguishes four different approaches, illustrating them empirically. 

    1. How are intersectional spaces negotiated, deliberated or struggled over in gender-based violence politics? What constraints and opportunities for intersectional politics are set up and provided by the political and policymaking institutions? Which civil society politics impact on this?

    2. A focus on “doing intersectionality”. How do institutions and CSOs working on gender-based violence address intersectionality in practice? This prioritizes the question of how intersectionality is done in practice (service provision, cooperation between ‘gender organisations’ and ‘ethnicity organisations’, alliances, coalitions, hierarchies or co-optation.

    3. To articulate how intersectionality plays out in opposition to gender equality within gender-based violence politics. Who is opposing and/or co-opting intersectionality in gender-based violence politics? How, in what ways, and why? Importantly, here the powerful are kept in sight, especially how the interests of majority groups are represented, created and ‘done’. Who is said to be losing from intersectionality? Are certain groups of women marginalised in certain practices? Is it gender solo that is opposed, or gender+? 

    4. Therelations between different political domains (Walby 2009)? How is (sensitivity to) intersectionality in the violence domain affected by or affecting, developments in other domains (polity, civil society, economy)? Here social class is brought back into the analysis. 

    The paper concludes by showing how the four approaches, together, provide a more comprehensive understanding of intersectionality and of gender-based violence.
