Critical studies of gender equalities : Nordic dislocations, dilemmas and contradictions
It makes especially good sense to look closely at the consequences and difficulties that arise out of the many-faceted meanings attached to gender and equality in politics and policies, as well as in daily life.
In this book, eleven Nordic scholars offer critical analyses of current dislocations, dilemmas and contradictions in the field of Nordic gender equality. They have studied issues to do with constructing state and nation, regulating political practices and producing gendered subjectivities.
The authors are affiliated with universities in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden and united in seeing the need for a critical scholarly stance on Nordic gender equality policies and practices.
