Ongoing research

My research focuses for the moment mainly on the history of feminism and the history of gender equality. I have published on the use of colors as symbols among Swedish feminists throughout the 20th century and on the reception of gender equality policies in Sweden and France.

In 2015 I published a book in Swedish about one of Sweden’s feminist groups of the 1970s: Att ge sig själv makt: Grupp 8 och 1970-talets feminism. An article in English concentrating on the methodological aspects of studying contemporary feminist activists will be published in a collective book at Berghahn publishers.
