Amazonia – the future world where women rule
Year of publication: 2010
This report examines central aspects of men’s and women’s position in society, and discusses where we are heading and how fast things are going.
The gender power order not only represents one of the fundamental structures constituting our societies and is an expression of how certain privileges have been cemented. At the same time this order is changing. By linking trends in different spheres of society, Arne Jernelöv casts new light on a possible future where women rule.
