Synopsis

This is the first book to explode the myth of Swedish gender equality, offering both a new perspective for an international audience, and suggesting how equality might be re-thought generally. The authors argue that whilst gender equality in Sweden has led to a society with increased opportunities for some, it has also become nationalistic and builds upon heteronormative and racial principles.
