The Failure of Swedish Feminism
July 8, 2009 by Ragnar
During the past few years, gender feminism has been on the march in Sweden. Radical leftwing feminist ideas are today more or less a state ideology, incorporated in all facets of education and also promoted by various government agencies.
So when the feminist party Feminist Initiative announced that they would run for election it looked as if they might become a force to be reckoned with. The party was headed by Gudrun Schyman, who recently had lost her job as the leader of the former communist party.
Since Schyman is a charismatic and popular politician many people believed that Feminist Initiative might at least come close to gaining the 4 percent of votes necessary to attain seats in the Swedish parliament. But in the election on 17th of September the party gained less than 0.7 percent of the votes.
So what happened? As it turns out, the radical and odd views that the party's representatives hold scared away many voters.
