Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay is to investigate whether gender stereotypes are reinforced or not in a textbook commonly used in the upper-secondary English A course, Blueprint A version 2.0. This is an important question due to that gender equality is an important goal in our schools and in today’s society. This investigation shows that the textbook is not gender neutral. This indicates that schools need to discuss further what material should be used in schools in order to strive for gender equality.
