Feminism, Swedish Style

“Sweden has the first feminist government in the world,” brags the Swedish government on its official website. Meaning what, exactly?

“This means that gender equality is central to the Government’s priorities… a gender equality perspective is brought into policy-making on a broad front… The Government’s most important tool for implementing feminist policy is gender mainstreaming, of which gender-responsive budgeting is an important component.”

Accompanying this patch of bureaucratic rhetoric is a photograph of Sweden’s current government of twelve women and eleven men.

Remind you of an idiot peoples?
