Abstract [en]

Notions of gender equality are strongly linked to the Swedish self-image. This article explores returning Swedish migrant womens negotiations of heterosexual gender equality ideals based on their experiences of being housewives to middle- and upper-class men with work contracts abroad. From fieldwork conducted within two networks for returning Swedes, the article provides an analysis of the ways in which the women talk about work, gender equality, and domestic workers.The analysis of the womens accounts of gender relations shows that different ways of doing femininity are central in their narratives. By using the concepts emphasized femininity and gender-equal femininity the article highlights the different forms of femininity that can be traced in the womens narratives. Drawing from the empirical examples, it is shown that the women are troubled by Swedish gender equality ideals and express a feeling of not fitting in after returning to Sweden. I suggest that the womens articulations of not fitting in to (imagined) gender-equal Sweden tend to downplay the fact that they still have advantages that assist with fitting in from social positions such as class, whiteness, and (hetero)sexuality: positions which may create space for negotiating social norms in Sweden.
