Friend or for?: An age perspective on gender mainstreaming
Karlstad University, Faculty of Social and Life Sciences, Department of Social Studies. (Socialt arbete)
2011 (English)Conference paper, (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Gender mainstreaming has been defined as a strategy which aims to bring about gender equality. The concept emphasizes that we must bear in mind the different consequences that legislation and action plans can have for women and men. Since the concept was first proposed in 1985, the vocabulary has been broadly adopted internationally. However, there are various levels of implementation and progress. In both the political and academic debates the differences are substantial, for example with respect to the formulation of goals and how other bases for inequality are addressed. In this paper, I discuss the strategy from an intersectional perspective by way of analysing how gender equality and age based equality interact. By referring to qualitative data I shed light on how different applications of gender mainstreaming can both maintain and challenge asymmetrical age relations. In so doing, theoretical tensions and research frameworks will be reconsidered.
