What’s going on, Sweden? A Gender Equality Check

What's the status of gender equality in one of the world's most gender equal countries? 

When looking at gender equality rates globally, Sweden has been in the top 5 countries for a long time. Internationally, Sweden has been known for its focus on development, aid, gender equality and human rights. The previous government even pioneered a feminist foreign policy. However - recent years have seen a shift in the public discourse on these issues. 

In this episode, I speak to a representative from academia, Niclas Järvklo, the General Secretary of the Swedish Women’s Organizations, Clara Berglund, and the newly appointed Minister of Gender Equality, Paulina Brandberg. The conversations were recorded at the Swedish Gender Equality Forum in February 2023.
