Summary
Sweden has the reputation of being one of the most gender-equal countries in the world, and it is often held up as a model for other societies but the reality is much more complicated, as this volume shows. The first book to provide a thorough analysis of the myth of Swedish gender equality, this volume shows how that dominant idea has become a form of nationalism that ultimately excludes those who fall outside the social norm
