With its demand for products, services and food processing, family farming has to a great extent been the backbone of the Swedish rural economy [ 9 ]. However, despite the central role of women in the rural economy, their economic activities and situations are often neglected in the conventional concept of the economy.

In an attempt to theoretically question the conventional understanding and use, feminist researchers have raised the jordbruket i siffror to re-read the concept of the economy in a more jordbruket i siffror and dynamic way [ 1011 ].


In the field of rural gender studies, a renewed understanding of the jordbruket i siffror has been emphasized, for example by Shortall [ 11 ]. The economic processes and material jordbruket i siffror should be understood through analyses of the gendered distribution of resources [ 12 ]—in this case the access to land—and its geographical, spatial and economic differences, linking the materialized conditions to the various types and number of business activities and their ability to provide income for the household.

Social, cultural and material relations are jordbruket i siffror in specific localities and are interlinked with their geographical, spatial, political jordbruket i siffror historical positions, especially in agricultural practices and rural relations.

The study is based on the premise that place matters [ 1 ], that the gendered processes of farming, commodification and entreprenurial activities are situated [ 13141516 ], and that the gendered economy of Swedish rural areas deserves specific attention.

Generally, Sweden is regarded as a homogeneous society with common spatial, historical and political relations. However, in terms of climate, vegetation and topography, its conditions vary largely.

Based on the latter value, Sweden and Finland clearly constitute an exception within the European Union, placing them in a clear last place in comparisons with other member states. Due to the low productivity and location of land in its northern parts, Sweden has, on average, some of the least expensive agricultural land in the European Union jordbruket i siffror 19 ].

Due to a large diversity, the production and spatial conditions of southern parts of Sweden are more similar to the conditions of central Europe than those of the northern parts.


Given the variety of land quality across different parts of the country, land prices in the most fertile southern regions are more than fold higher than in the north. Jordbruket i siffror low average prices, limited amount and increasing demand for agricultural land, together with the impact of the area-based subsidy, have resulted in a steady increase in land prices and differentiation of various regions in Sweden [ 1920 ].

To date, contexts similar to the Swedish case have received limited attention in sociological agrarian research and rural gender studies [ 2122 ]. In comparison with other Western countries, Sweden is often seen as a role model in the progress of gender equality.

However, the political efforts to promote equality in rural areas have had small affects [ 2324 ]. In this context, jordbruket i siffror Swedish case contributes to the understanding of materiality in a set of specific spatial conditions, localities, ideologies and relations. The combination of the general political context of equality, regulations and the small amount of agricultural land, together with the diverse productive and spatial conditions within the contextual frame [ 25 ], means that the Jordbruket i siffror case provides a fruitful base for the study of gendered material relations and emphasizes the importance of its situated reproduction in Swedish agrarian ideologies.

This contribution constitutes a part in the process of understanding how material relations reproduce the gendered positions and practices—the materiality—of women in Swedish agriculture.

The examination of the complex interrelationships of material, resources gender and localities are initiated through the theoretical framework of a new material feminist ontology [ 26 ], with the aim of contributing to the theoretical development of rural gender studies.

Theory From the early s, arguments have been made for the incorporation of gender into the political economy of agriculture [ 27 ] and the integration of the political economy into gender studies [ 11 ]. In the past, the narrow understanding of the economy has only been able to cover a limited share of economic activities and relations, for example, omitting non-wage labor [ 28 ].

Understanding jordbruket i siffror materiality of social relations—the physical being—in the intra-acting economic and embodied processes is a central part of the new conceptualization of political economy.

jordbruket i siffror In a material feminist methodology, subjects are constituted through experience, which means that individuals, men and women, are shaped and situated by social and material experiences, perceived through the socialized body [ 263031 ].

The situated and embodied subjects of men and women are the basis of agency; decision-making, actions and value systems. Women often take greater responsibility for the family and household duties and are perceived as being less professional and less successful entrepreneurs than men [ 3233 ].

Men and women choose to engage in and develop different new business activities, both jordbruket i siffror the existing farm enterprise [ 343536 ] and in off-farm enterprises [ 837 ].
