Abstract [en]

In this article, some of the discourses concerning 'gender-sensitive pedagogy' that circulate in Swedish preschools are discussed. Two guideline documents that circulate in gender- and equity-sensitive projects in preschool are investigated, and the question is asked: What gender-related messages can possibly reach preschools from the guidelines? The method is discourse analysis inspired by Michel Foucault. Three different discourses were found: the discourse of the preschool institution; the discourse of gender and/or equity; and the gender-pedagogical discourse.
