Equalize it!: Sportification and Transforming of Gender Boundaries in Emerging Swedish Women’s Football, 1966-1999
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2018
We will analyze the strategies used by the Öxabäck players to convince the Swedish Football Association, the press, and the public that their ambition to play football was serious and should be supported. What aspects of sportification did they try to achieve, as Swedish women’s football went through a rapid sportification process in the late 1960s and early 1970s? We argue that concepts related to sportification, such as rational training and organization, were used to further the cause of women’s football. The experiences from the Öxabäck case are important to shed light on similar processes in currently emerging sports today.
