"more and More young women who pattern and more female employees. I hope the armed Forces to achieve, but it is still a challenge to attract women to the military."
"According to the armed forces' analysis, there is a stereotypical image of women in the field of defense and an inaccurate picture of what the work requires. Despite the fact that military service today is gender-neutral, there are relatively few women who take the census, and even fewer go on to become men."
"Just like last year, bet the armed Forces in the years of advertising campaigns targeted at young women."
"– the armed Forces grows, and then we don't want to miss out on half the population, " says Nemo Stjernstrўm, marknadsstrateg of the armed Forces."
"He adds that the need of the young, which conducts the initial training, and then choose to stay and seek employment, will increase."
"last year was 28 per cent of those who were called to the enlistment of women, but among them which went on and was drafted into the us to do undergraduate education was only 16 percent women. In the previous year, the corresponding proportions were 25 and 15 percent respectively."
"The biggest reason for the dropout rate of women during the mönstringsprocessen are the requirements of physical strength, which allows women who otherwise have high values on the different prövningsmomenten turns out, according to the Defence forces' annual report for the year 2018."
"– Rekryteringsmyndighetens task is to write into the one that is best suited, and does not take into account whether it is a man or a woman, " says Sofie Engström, head of communications at the authority."
"in the Face of the patterning of those moves in 2019 was reduced demands on muscle strength for several positions within the navy and air force, among other things, due to the technological development and to the weight on the soldiers 'and sailors' equipment has changed."
"the Registration to the different positions is still ongoing, but already now have a higher percentage of women entered against the very positions that have reduced demands on muscle strength, according to the armed Forces."
"Many women elected, however, already removed before the patterning, because they in their mönstringsunderlag have filled in that they are not interested in undergraduate education. When Rekryteringsmyndigheten choose which men and women to sign a strong emphasis on their own interests."
"Among them that are born in 1999 and 2000, one can see that more and more men are interested to do the training, and this answers the questions," says Sofie Engström."
"Around 20 000 people working in the armed Forces on a daily basis. 17 per cent of them are women and 83 per cent of them are men."
"Most women are in the civilian positions. There are about 37 per cent women."
"the armed Forces are working on several ways to increase the number of women, both among those who carries out initial and among the employees of the armed Forces. It makes, inter alia, through school visits, mässutställningar and ungdomskurser."
"According to the Defence forces' annual report for the year 2018, women have been placed on the utvecklingsbefattningar, in order to make the upcoming promotions possible. Women have also been prioritized in the mentoring program in the higher befattningsnivåerna."
