    Sweden: Feminist party "could undermine government"

    It’s hard to miss that it’s International Women’s Day today. No fewer than two new networks have been announced by prominent politicians and the long-awaited rumours of Gudrun Schyman’s feminist party have been officially announced as... rumours.

    Dagens Industri reported that Schyman will launch her Feminist party in April. Schyman herself, who has two speaking appearances today, insists she will not present a Feminist party - yet.

    Meanwhile, the Social Democratic party secretary Marita Ulvskog and former EU minister Margareta Winberg have announced their own feminist network, called Feministas.

    "We women do not experience Sweden as an egalitarian, mature society. That’s why we must fight for a feminist emphasis in politics," said Ulvskog and Winberg via Aftonbladet today.

    "We want to take back the official space. We want the same rights and have the same respect as men do in this society. If laws are necessary, well, then we demand them," they continued.

    Feministas has launched its own web page today. They say they want to drive the debate on salaries, domestic violence, girls in schools and even health care issues.

    "Even when we’re sick we’re not treated as women," they write on their web site.

    But Feministas founder Marita Ulvskog does not believe in a Feminist party.

    "That would be a disaster for women," she told Göteborgs-Posten. She said women would leave the Social Democrats, the Greens and the Left Party in favor of a Feminist party.

    "Then the Conservatives and Christian Democrats could simply take over politics and women’s issues," she said.

    Prime minister Göran Persson agreed. Speaking on a visit to Malmö, he said he saw it as a serious threat to the ruling socialist coalition.

    "It would undermine the conditions for both the Greens and the Left party to have a place in parliament," he said.

    "Then we would quickly find ourselves in a situation where we have a government which works directly against the objectives of a feminist party."

    But it's not just the socialists who are using International Women's Day as a springboard for a new network. Christian Democrat Maria Larsson has presented her own network, Kvinnobloggen.se, the 'women’s blog'. She says it’s an alternative to Feministas and Gudrun Schyman.

    "Equality is not a Left issue," she said.

    Indeed, if a page three special in Metro is anything to go by, there are left feminists, right feminists, media feminists, denim feminists and many more.

    "What type of feminist are you?" asked the paper. Perhaps you're a "post-colonial feminist", trying to move away from the notion of feminism as a white, heterosexual, western movement and acknowledging that ethnicity, sexuality and age are just as important on the equality agenda.

    If that all sounds a bit wishy-washy and you find yourself raging against sexist advertising and men's violence against women then you're probably a "radical feminist".

    And if you happen to be of the view that men get a bit of a raw deal too, being discriminated against in, for example, the childcare sector, then you're an "equalist".

    I thought they didn't want to be treated as women..? : Everyone should be treated the same, no?

    I think women are perfectly capable of being strong without figuratively castrating the men around them, just as I think it is possible to make ones own people paramount to oneself without attacking or denigrating other peoples.

    This woman, Gudrun Shyman, the former leader of the communistparty here in Sweden, once said in public that "all men are potential rapists etc etc"...hmmm...what shall we do with all men? Castrate them and then use insemination? Jeez..........

    And howe about the "equal thinking = women and men are equal in everything" that Gudrun Shyman always are talking about...
    I mean, there are many women that want to be a boss for a big company (even if they don't have a clue in what business it is), but no one want to work in the mines up north here in Sweden...strange huh? Still think that women and men are equal?

    Just two things i have been thinking about when it comes to this Shyman and what she is saying.
