The Feminist Spring? : A Narrative Analysis of the Media Discourse of the Swedish party Feminist Initiative
Summary, in Swedish
The result of the analyzes gave three narratives in conjunction with the election to the European Parliament, and two narratives of the national general election. The narratives were characterized by simplifications and exaggerations and followed a populist discourse and responded to a patriarchal structure. Furthermore, the analyzes of the narratives showed that media tends to follow already existing narratives rather than adjusting the news coverage to the object it aims to portray. Through a contextualization of the narratives, I conclude that the media discourse on Feminist Initiative did create a political environment more supportive of feminism. That the feminist agenda became more prioritized through the popularization but simultaneously entered the Swedish political landscape in terms of action.
