Special attention to research in Gender studies on International Women's Day 

As a way of acknowledgning the International Women's day on March 8, around thirty Gender studies reseachers from all over Sweden will be presenting their work. Through an initiative of the Ämnesföreningen för genusvetenskap (ÄG), the universities in Uppsala, Örebro, Lund, Stockholm, Östersund, and Gothenburg are organizing gender relays (genusstafett), panel discussions and workshops in connection with International Women's Day, to raise awareness about and highlight the depth and variety of contemporary gender research.

– It is important for Gender studies to reach out since everyone is affected by it. We are all influenced by norms and expectations about gender and other power structures, regardless of whether we belong to the norm or not, says Jenny Björklund, professor at the Centre for Gender Studies in Uppsala, who is also involved in one of the events.
