    Abstract [en]

    Gender equality can be understood as part of the long-term historical struggles for equality and democracy. In this process, gender equality interventions are important tools in enhancing women's rights and participation, yet this striving for greater gender equality is by no means unproblematic, for example, as demonstrated by LGBTQI+ movements. There are many arguments for gender equality – feminist transformation, gender justice, gender difference, realization of individual and collective potential, and its fuller use – and many ways of framing gender equality. Within liberal feminism, gender equality involves realizing the potential of women and men equally within the current gender order. In gender-resistance feminism, the gender order cannot be made equal through gender balance, as men's dominance is too strong. Rebellion feminists seek to take apart the gendered social order by multiplying genders or doing away with them. Gender policy operates differentially at organizational and occupational levels, and in public and private sectors, with extremely variable historical contexts. Major supranational bodies, such as the United Nations, the European Union, and the Council of Europe, have been prominent in promotion of gender equality. Various critiques of gender equality are outlined. Future challenges facing gender equality and gender equality policy are noted.

    Understanding gender: some implications for science and technology2011In: ISR. Interdisciplinary science review, ISSN 0308-0188, E-ISSN 1743-2790, Vol. 36, no 2, p. 103-113Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Gender relations and gendered power relations are major defining features of science and technology. This article addresses the question of how to understand gender, and considers their various implications for science and technology. Gender and gender relations can be understood as operating and as relevant to science and technology at several levels: who does science and technology; how science and technology are organized; and the construction of knowledge in science and technology. We review five underlying formulations that inform both policy interventions and theorizing around gender and science - gender based on sex; masculinity/femininity and sex roles; categoricalism, structure and plural structures; poststructuralist, discursive and deconstructive approaches; the material-discursive.

    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.

    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.

    Gender Discrimination in the Promised Land of Gender Equality2000In: Higher Education in Europe, ISSN 0379-7724, E-ISSN 1469-8358, Vol. 25, no 2, p. 221-228Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For many years, Finland has been known as a country that promotes gender equality in all walks of life, particularly in the domain of higher education. Yet here, too, women academics encounter the glass ceiling and subtle forms of gender discrimination. In particular, the author cites the practice of filling professorships by invitation rather than by open competition as one that discriminates against women. It seems that the Finnish gender equality law of 1987, although certainly well intentioned, fails to provide for appropriate sanctions for poor compliance.

    Interrogating Science Policy in a Pro Gender Equality Setting: The Case of Sweden2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper interrogates science policy-making through a gender lens in a country setting that strongly promotes gender equality as a societal value and as an explicit policy goal. The paper asks: can something be learnt from this kind of a setting to benefit the implementation of the targets of the UN Sustainable Development Goals? Swedish society has among the smallest societal gender gaps in global comparison. With its long term history of gender equality policy and actions, and the current social democratic-green coalition government declaring itself as a “feminist government”, it provides an interesting societal setting for this kind of exercise. Gender mainstreaming the activities of public authorities is a strong policy line, including, among others, public research funding and innovation agencies, and recently universities.  The paper addresses the question in what ways are gender dimensions integrated in Swedish contemporary science policy. How are problems in this arena articulated, defined, and contested? How are gender dimensions taken into account in the governance and steering of science, in science policy strategies, and in the activities of different key stakeholders and inter-organisational activities? How does international collaboration, specifically within EU and the Nordic region, reflect on how gender dimensions are taken into account in the Swedish science policy landscape? What kind of dilemmas and contradictions can be identified? The empirical material consists mainly of science policy documents, and is supported by material generated through participant observation in some science policy arenas, such as research funding agencies and governmental advisory committees, as well as media coverage. An emerging issue in gendering of science policy-making that is of high relevance to the SDGs is highlighting the gender dimension of research content in funding of research, in addition to the gender distribution of scientific labour force and among gatekeepers and decision-makers in science.

    Nordic Countries and the Nordic Region: Gender Research and Gender Studies in Northern Europe2018In: Handbuch Interdisziplinäre Geschlechterforschung / [ed] Beate Kortendiek, Birgit Riegraf & Katja Sabisch, Wiesbaden, Germany: Springer VS Wiesbaden , 2018Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Globally, the five countries of the Nordic region – Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden – are known to be among the most gender equal societies. However, gender segregation in labour market and education are persistent, and gender inequalities in academia and research show many patterns similar to elsewhere. Noteworthy for the region is a long tradition of Nordic regional collaboration through inter-governmental and inter-parliamentary organisations, as well as in research and non-governmental organisations; this has had a significant impact on the development of gender equality, gender research and Gender Studies on both regional and national levels.

    Women's Work-Related and Family-Related Discrimination and Support in Academia2005In: Gender Relations: Local and Global / [ed] Marcia Texler Segal, Vasilikie Demos, Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2005, p. 161-199Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Academia remains a male-dominated occupational realm, even though women have made great gains as actors in higher education. The interconnections of work-related and family-related discrimination experiences and work-related and family-related support are analyzed, drawing on over 100 semi-structured interviews with and written accounts of academic women in 11 Finnish universities from all major disciplinary fields. Finland provides an interesting research context, characterized by relatively high gender equality in both academia and society more generally. Exploring academic women in this setting reveals several paradoxes, namely those of: feminization of academia; family-friendly policies; academic motherhood; and academic endogamy.

    Gender and gatekeeping of excellence in research funding: European perspectives2010In: GenderChange in Academia: re-mapping the fields of work, knowledge, and politics from a gender perspective / [ed] Birgit Riegraf, Brigitte Aulenbacher, Edit Kirsch-Auwärter, Ursula Müller, Wiesbaden: VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften, 2010, 1, p. 43-59Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Women continue to be a minority among European researchers. Access to funding is one of the keys to success in academic careers, both for women and for men, providing essential support for research and publications. Indeed, the role of competitive funding is increasing in many European national settings and success in the competition for research funding is now often used as a measure of scientific excellence at both individual and institutional level. Those who decide on allocation of research funding play thus an important gatekeeping role shaping the research system.

    Women, management and leadership - Naiset ja johtajuus: NASTA women's leadership project final report2011Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Leadership without the full participation of women not only excludes women individually and collectively, but is also a huge waste of talent, knowledge and expertise. And crucially, given the current state of society and the world, this aspect of gender inequality is likely to become even more important in the future. NASTA - Women’s Leadership: A Research and Education Development Project was established in 2005 as a national multi-university project mainly and generously funded by Finnish Ministry of Education. The project aims at producing new knowledge and increasing understanding about women’s leadership, as well as promoting women’s leadership through research, development of teaching, and public outreach. NASTA is a joint effort of three Finnish universities – Hanken School of Economics, University of Jyväskylä School of Business and Economics, and the Helsinki School of Economics (now part of Aalto University) – and has been coordinated by Hanken. This report presents research and activities conducted within and around the project. NASTA activities have been many and various. They have examined the position and experiences of women in relation to leadership, management, organisation and work more generally. They have sought new knowledge about gender and leadership, on women leaders’ values, attitudes and behaviour, as well as about values, attitudes and behaviour in relation to women’s leadership. NASTA activities have included teaching, student supervision, research theses, research projects, publishing, networking, seminars, meetings, an international conference, and knowledge transfer into other sectors of society. The first section of the book introduces NASTA joint projects, including web-based teaching material, a survey of gender staffing and teaching on gender in business schools, critical review of previous research literature, and new empirical research. The next section includes research articles on different aspects of gender, leadership and manage¬¬ment from more individual projects conducted by participating researchers and research groups linked to NASTA across the three universities. The final section includes short presentations of other research in progress. The appendix lists publications by NASTA members – journal articles, research reports, books, chapters, journal special issues, popular journal articles, magazine articles - and masters, licentiate and doctoral theses that have been produced. These matters of women, leadership and management are not simply academic concerns but urgent matters for practice, organisations, management, policy, and society more generally.

    Gendering excellence in technological reseach: a comparative European perspective2010In: Journal of technology management & innovation, ISSN 0718-2724, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 127-139Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Gender patterns in technological and engineering research careers were explored in the EU funded 13-country study PROMETEA in 2005-2007, including old and new EU member states, and Serbia, the Russian Federation and Chile. Drawing from this study, the article analyses the gendering of key arenas of excellence in technological and engineering research from a comparative international perspective, with a focus on research funding, publishing, scientific prizes and awards, and patents. A central challenge for gender-sensitive science and research policy is how to combine the promotion of scientific excellence with the promotion of gender equality. Exploring the gendering of excellence in technology and engineering research is of special interest because of the strong position this field enjoys in national, European and international research policy and in national research policies, and also because it continues to be the most male-dominated research field. Furthermore, the article discusses methodological challenges of this type of comparative research.

    Representations of women researchers in Finnish print media: top researchers, multi-talents and experts [Representaciones de mujeres investigadoras En la prensa escrita finlandesa: investigadoras de élite, multi-talentos y expertas]2016In: Investigaciones Feministas, ISSN 2171-6080, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 203-224Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Women’s underrepresentation in the scientific community is currently on the agenda of science policy, both in Europe and internationally. The significance of media as a provider of female role models, on the one hand, and in reproducing stereotypical images of scientists, on the other hand, is often mentioned in this context. However, there is relative lack of research on how women researchers are depicted in the media, especially outside US and UK contexts. Finland provides an interesting context to study media representations of women in research, as a relatively gender equal and research intensive setting seen from a global perspective.

    The media representations of women researchers in Finland were explored by analyzing person interviews in Finnish printed media: newspapers, women’s magazines and magazines aimed for general public. The data consists of 107 interviews of women researchers from all fields of research, published in 1997-2014. Overwhelming majority of the interviews was written by female journalists. The analysis focuses on both social and linguistic aspects of the interviews from a gender perspective. Women researchers were found to be represented by a variation of frames, the most common of which were the Expert and the Top Researcher. Their family context was frequently mentioned, and the interviews frequently commented their appearance(e.g. hair, physique, way of moving).

    The fact that the interviewees’ family context was often highlighted in the interviews may serve to convey a message that it is possible and common to combine a career in research and family. One main result of the study was the diversity of representations of female researchers,compared to US and UK studies. The diversity of the media images of female researchers suggests that the media may provide important role models for young women, encouraging women to choose research as a profession.
