    Cultivating Gender: Meanings of Place and Work in Rural Vietnam2015Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    “The husband ploughs, the wife transplants, the buffalo harrows.” In rural Vietnam, this ancient saying has survived communist revolution, land reforms and the recent rise of market-oriented household farming. And yet, even if this trinity still pictures the ideal essence of farming life, the reality is that urbanization, labour migration and economic change in the Vietnamese countryside are leading to a feminization of farming. This transformation has profound implications not just for the agricultural sector and the individual women themselves but also for fundamental social structures and relations. By exploring in detail the lived reality of rural life in a northern wet-rice village, the author offers important insights into place, workand (not least) what constitutes femininity and masculinity in Vietnam today.

    Beyond the Singapore Girl: Discourses of Gender and Nation in Singapore2013Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The branding of Singapore International Airlines with the image of a beautiful, petite and servile ‘Oriental’ woman dressed in figure-huggingsarong-kebaya is one of the world’s longest running and most successful advertising campaigns. But this image does not simply advertise a service; it is part of a global and national regime of symbolic constructions of gender that today is seen as outdated and sexist, and bearing little relation to modern Singapore where women have good access to education and increased life choices resulting from engagement in the wage economy. The nation’s economic success has been a force for their liberation. One catastrophic consequence of women’s changed lives has been the plunge in fertility rates.

    Singapore has one of the world’s lowest despite energetic government campaigns encouraging women to have more babies – and men to be more ‘masculine’. The failure of these campaigns and rethinking of the Singapore Girl highlight a key premise of this book: there are limits to the power of discursive constructions of gender in the national interest.

    Regulation of Gender - Discriminatory Advertising in the Nordic Countries2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Due to the media’s normative power to reflect daily life and to shape our understanding of gender, media plays a vital role in constructing – or deconstructing – gender equality. In modern societies, the advertising industry plays a major role in the media landscape. In the Nordic countries gender discriminatory advertising has been on the public agenda since the 1970s and 1980s, the time when gender equality legislation was adopted. However, the Nordic countries have chosen different ways of combating and regulating gender discriminatory advertising. This report presents results of a survey on how gender-discriminatory advertising is regulated in the Nordic countries. The survey was conducted as part of a project on gender equality in the media carried out during the Finnish presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2016.

    Gendered Entanglements: Revisiting Gender in Rapidly Changing Asia2015Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    •  First of its kind with a specific Asia focus, covering a wide set of contemporary issues relating to gender.

    • Explores if gender as a social analytic has remained true to its earlier feminist promise for emancipatory and empowering outcomes.

    The overall objective of this volume is to revisit gender as a concept that can engage simultaneously with change and continuity in today’s Asia, but with greater intellectual reflexivity to examine multiple, intersecting, and complex dimensions of identity and difference, and formerly unacknowledged sources of social power from institutions and their emerging discourses. Individual chapters, written by gender scholars from Europe and Asia, critically examine the concept of gender in the context of emerging development issues relating to four broad thematic areas: ‘Gender over Time’, ‘Power, Policy and Practices’, ‘Environment and Resources’, and ‘Justice and Human Rights’. In so doing, they also address how gender has been changed, both as a normative process influencing social roles and relations and as an object and/or a concept of research.

    A Nordic region for all

    • Funktionshinder

    The Nordic countries, including the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland islands, want to work together as effectively as possible to make society more accessible. The Nordic Council of Ministers has commissioned a report with proposals for areas of co-operation with regard to universal design and accessibility. The work is funded by the Council of Ministers’ Sustainable Development Strategy. Since the report was commissioned, the UN has adopted sustainability goals as part of Agenda 2030.

    The report is primarily aimed to policy makersat the Nordic level. It may also be of interest topeople who work with sustainable developmentas well as universal design and accessibility atthe national, regional or local level. Differencesin the conditions for participation and equalopportunities between women and men orgirls and boys, respectively, were also describedwhere such information exists. The project andthe panel were coordinated by the Secretariatfor the Council for Nordic Co-operation onDisability at the Nordic Centre for Welfare.5Introduction

    Japan's Family Friendly Policies: Why Fathers Matter2015In: Asia in Focus: A Nordic journal on Asia by early career researchers, ISSN 2446-0001, no 1, p. 3-11Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is a research report introducing the main findings of the study conducted as a part of the researcher’s Master’s Thesis on Japanese Family Friendly Policies (FFPs) and the effect they are having on advancing a gender balanced society in Japan, focusing on the influence fathers may have in this equation. The research included a three month field work on the experiences of parents who had utilised Family Friendly Policies since their implementation in the 1990s. The research found that the Japanese FFPs have failed to achieve their aims to increase the fertility rate and women’s employability for the following three reasons. Firstly these aims are based on the foundations of gender neutrality in a society that is in reality highly divided along gender lines. Secondly the aims are narrow in scope and target group, and thirdly do not address the real causes of low fertility and employment problems. I argue that promoting the role of fathers as carers would disrupt established gender norms and the benefits of FFPs would cross gender lines and produce practical outcomes that the current FFPs are unable to produce.

    Nordic Countries Overview of Work with Perpetrators of Intimate Partner Violence2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the Nu Räcker Det was to map out the models used in the Nordic countries to help the perpetrators of IPV to end violence. The project questionnaire was filled in by the service providers. The number of invited programmes was 68, and the response rate was around 80%. Results indicate that still some services are not free of charge and are not equally distributed geographically. In terms of safety, although most programmes contact the (ex-) partner at the beginning of the treatment, still half of the programmes do not contact the (ex-) partner during the treatment or at the end of it, moreover nearly half of the programmes do not use any risk assessment instrument. Outcome is measured by most of the programmes however partner and official reports should also be included. Finally, those results are compared and discussed in light of the European context.

    Nordic co-operation programme on gender equality 2019-20222019Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The co-operation of the Nordic countries, the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland on gender equality is to effectively contribute to the Nordic region becoming a gender-equal region. Achieving a gender-equal society requires an active gender equality policy that not only improves the situation for the individual but also lifts society. Utilising women’s and men’s, girls’ and boys’ competency, experience and ability to exert influence is vital for creating a sustainable future. The Nordic Co-operation Programme on Gender Equality 2019-2022 has four focus areas: Future of work and economic growth; Welfare, health and quality of life; Power and influence; Gender equality with focus on men and masculinities. The programme also promotes an outward-looking and visible collaboration, and puts emphasis on gender mainstreaming within the Nordic Council of Ministers.

    Nordiskt samarbetsprogram för jämställdhet 2019–20222019Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    De nordiska ländernas, Färöarnas, Grönlands och Ålands jämställdhetssamarbete ska konkret och effektivt bidra till att Norden blir en jämställd region. För att uppnå ett jämställt samhälle krävs en aktiv jämställdhetspolitik som inte enbart förbättrar situationen för individen utan lyfter hela samhället. Att ta tillvara både kvinnors och mäns, flickors och pojkars kompetens, erfarenhet och möjlighet till påverkan är avgörande för att skapa en hållbar framtid. Nordiskt samarbetsprogram för jämställdhet 2019-2022 täcker fyra strategiska insatsområden, nämligen framtidens arbetsliv och tillväxt; välfärd, hälsa och livskvalitet; makt och inflytande; samt jämställdhetsarbete med fokus på män och maskuliniteter. Programmet satsar även på ett utåtriktat och synligt jämställdhetssamarbete, och lägger vikt vid jämställdhetsintegrering i Nordiska ministerrådet.

    Pohjoismaisen tasa-arvosektorin yhteistyöohjelma 2019–20222019Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [fi]

    Pohjoismaiden sekä Ahvenanmaan, Färsaarten ja Grönlannin tasaarvoyhteistyön tarkoituksena on edistää konkreettisesti ja tehokkaasti tasa-arvoisen Pohjolan tavoitetta. Tasa-arvoisen yhteiskunnan saavuttaminen vaatii aktiivista tasa-arvopolitiikkaa, joka parantaa paitsi yksilön myös koko yhteiskunnan olosuhteita. Sekä naisten ja miesten että tyttöjen ja poikien osaamisen ja kokemuksen hyödyntäminen ja heidän vaikutusmahdollisuuksistaan huolehtiminen on ratkaisevan tärkeää kestävän tulevaisuuden kannalta. Pohjoismaisen tasa-arvosektorin yhteistyöohjelma 2019–2022 sisältää neljä strategista painopistealuetta, jotka ovat tulevaisuuden työelämä ja kasvu; hyvinvointi, terveys ja elämänlaatu; valta ja vaikutusmahdollisuudet sekä miehiin ja maskuliinisuuksiin keskittyvä tasa-arvotyö. Ohjelman tavoitteena on lisäksi ulospäin suuntautuva ja näkyvä tasa-arvoyhteistyö, jossa painotetaan sukupuolinäkökulman valtavirtaistamista Pohjoismaiden ministerineuvoston työssä.
