The administration of justice in Vendel parish : A genderlegal survey of judgment books from Vendel ting stroke 1736–1737, focusing on the economic citizenship of women (English)
Abstract [en]

This genderlegal survey intends examine the practical power and status of women in the Swedish agricultural society. It will be accomplished through a qualitative survey of how justice was unfolded in the 1730s. Particular interest is aimed at disputes of owning in Vendel parish 1736–1737, and how this may be an expression of women’s status, power or lack of power in the age of freedom in Sweden. The scientific issue in the present survey is constructed with anchoring in the notion of Alice Harris Kessler; Economic citizenship. Economic citizenship comprises the right to use soil, the right to represent yourself in court and the right to inherit. It also includes the premise that gainful employment is arduous to combine with carework. This is basically a prolongation of an analysis of the civil citizenship, with origin from the sociologist TH Marshall. The reason why Kessler’s notion has been selected in this survey is because of its gender specific tendency.The methods in this survey is partly the qualitative method, partly the abductive method and partly the hermeneutic circle. The main results are basically that widows did have a greater amount of Economic Citizenship, than non-widows had. The results in the present survey has also shown that gainful employment is hard to combine with carework, which is shown through ploughmen and maids. The results have also shown that a lot of widows choose to engage again, once their previous husband has died. It is also clear that widows seem not only to have the privilege of being of age according to the law from 1734, but this privilege seems also to have been their practical living. But these phenomena are rather complex. The analysis of the empiricism has given origin to lots of new scientific issues which has been published in the chapter of analysis in the present survey. Those issues I do leave to someone else to answer in the future.
