Feminism in progress

Sassa Buregren & Elin Lindell

”It seems like there is an unwritten rules that says that girls have to be good, kind and sweet – while the boys are allowed to be rowdy and mainly be good at sports. Most teachers seem to think that anyway. I don’t like it, because one person is different from the other. You shouldn’t judge people before you get to know them.”

Ella, 12 yrs

All over the world, people talk about feminism and women’s rights. In some parts voices are heard about women’s right to drive, and in other parts it is the question of equal pay for equal work that engages.

Gender equality has progressed differently throughout the world. For instance, Sweden is regarded to be the most equal country in the world, but has never had a female Prime Minister. So what is feminism really and where do the ideas of feminism come from? And why isn’t equality something that goes without saying – why is it something to fight about?

This book combines facts and history with interviews with young people on feminism.
