Sammanfattning: This thesis has its primary focus on the voluntary female organization by the name Riksförbundet Sveriges Lottakårer. It is a voluntary defense organization by women that was founded after the first world war in 1924 and is still active till this day. The purpose of the thesis is to study gender relations between the female organization and the Swedish Armed Forces which is dominated mainly by the male gender. What was their attitude towards their own contribution to the Swedish defense? Why was it even necessary with a defense organization for women? In the 1980s was most of the occupations open for the Swedish women except for the occupations within the Swedish military, they weren´t accessible until 1989. This thesis focuses around the period 1985-1990 when the Swedish labor market finally were free from limitations and have used the material left by the organization such as reports from different meetings and year summaries all retrieved from Krigsarkivet in Stockholm. The study showed, altogether, how the women in the Swedish defense organization worked tirelessly toward acceptance in the Armed Forces and to retrieve the same economic citizenship as the men. By analyzing the retrieved material, we can establish the will of change that the women had and compare it to other organizations in history and theories about gender relations and behaviors within different types of organizations.
