Abstract [sv]

Sexuella trakasserier är inget nytt fenomen, men efter #metoo-rörelsens framfart kom världshälsoproblemet i en helt ny dager. Forskning visar att känslan av trygghet påverkas markant efter att ha blivit utsatt för sexuella trakasserier, samt även att kvinnor som identifierar sig som feminister hanterar trakasserierna bättre än andra efter en utsatthet.

Denna studie ämnar undersöka om feministisk identitet kan tjäna som skydd att bibehålla en känsla av trygghet i ett samhälle präglat av sexuella trakasserier.

I studien deltog flickor (n =27) som studerade på gymnasiet hördes via en webbaserad självbyggd enkät som legat till grund för studiens data. Korrelationstestning har genomförts mellan de olika variablerna Upplevt problem av sexuella trakasserier, feministisk identitet, upplevd trygghet och kännedom om #metoo.

Resultaten visar dock inget samband mellan feministisk identitet och känslan av trygghet, eller uppfattningen av problemet sexuella trakasserier. Däremot signifikant samband mellan uppfattningen av problemet sexuella trakasserier och upplevd trygghet i samhället.

Abstract [en]

Sexual harassment is not a new phenomenon, but with the #metoo movement, this world-wide health problem showed a whole new side. Studies have shown that future perceptions of safety are significantly affected after being sexually harassed. Also, women who identify themselves as feminists, have better coping strategies after being sexually harassed, than women who do not identify themselves as feminists.

This study aimed to explore if a feminist identity would serve young women as a protector for keeping the perception of safety in a world where sexual harassment is perceived as a big problem. Girls (n =27) at a Swedish gymnasium were heard through a web-based survey, which is the fundament of the study´s data.

The results showed that there was no relation between feminist identity and perceived safety or the perception of sexual harassment as a societal problem. However, a significant relation between sexual harassment and perceived safety was to be found.
