"– For me, kvinnokamp that we women do not see our gender as something that limits us, " says Tarin Islam."
"Marija Stevanovic, Emelie Engberg, Tarin Islam, and Josephine Lublin runs in the third grade at Tumba upper secondary school in Stockholm. For them is the issue of equality between the sexes as topical today as it was in the 20th century."
"We are still oppressed, but not in the same way as it was several years ago, now it is a little more invisible," says Emelie Engberg."
"For the girls is the young generation kvinnokamp much to do something about the structural, not as visible gender equality concerns. It can be patronizing comments from male classmates about their appearance and clothing, or signals that the girls take up too much space. Something that are commonplace, according to Marija Stevanovic."
"– It is very much the look I have experienced, you may have slept poorly, and when you get to school someone might say, "
"– I'm often the one who says the opposite, then I get bitchtiteln even if I do the same as the guys do – I'm just saying what I think, " says Tarin Islam."
"the Girls believe that many, both women and men, are not always aware that there are structures in society that are to women's disadvantage and where, for example, patronizing comments about women's appearance are not called into question. Therefore, it is to pay attention and confront them, think Marija."
"– So long as we continue to recognize and confirm a structure exists, it will persist, but if you go against it then I think you will see change."
"– Confronting the problem is the most important. If the a guy are told five times that he does the wrong by a girl when he post a comment he will, perhaps for the sixth time to take a dump to say anything. We must back each other and highlight when something is wrong."
"But they think that things are happening and they feel that many young people take gender equality seriously."
" It is generally young people are more engaged and aware. I know of many situations where I and my friends says from. I feel that many young women do, " says Marija."
"I think that the issue is important to many, for it is about the way we treated and allowed to live," says Josefin Lublin."
"Sweden is a good location, with equality if compared with other countries. On the world bank's jämställdhetsskala is Sweden one of six countries that will receive full points when it comes to economic equality, according to a report released recently. But there are still differences between the sexes when it comes to, for example, wages, salaries, pensions and withdrawals of vab and parental allowance."
" If you compare with many other countries, it is better here, at the same time, the man becomes frustrated. Why is it not equal? Why should men earn more than women and have it easier in so many ways? I do not understand why it should be so, " says Josefin."
"Despite the fact that there still are problems, do they agree with that it has happened a lot in 100 years."
" I can see it, as to aborträtten and the right to vote did not exist in Sweden before. Look at another country where it actually is so now, then, you think, shit, here was the Sweden in out one time and check out how far we have come. And still it gives hope for if such large changes could take place in a relatively short period of time, then can the normative problems also be solved, " says Tarin."
TT: of course, We have already come a long way in comparison with other countries, it is important to reach all the way to full equality?"
"– For me we need to go all the way. We may have it good now but there are everyday problems, I will not excuse me for the way I speak just because I am a girl, said Marija Stevanovic."
"Emelie Engberg agree with:"
"– Yes, we must continue to fight for it to be better."
