The purpose of this study was to examine how two of Sweden's largest newspapers wrote about homeless men and women. This was done by analyzing the approach to homelessness and homeless individuals from a gender perspective, by looking at how notions of homeless men and women appeared in texts. The material was analyzed with a discourse analytical approach and a gender perspective. The main results are that homelessness are defined and problematized in media with different terms of vulnerability. The portrayal of vulnerability in relation to homelessness differs in regards to the sexes. Women are portrayed as passive victims of homelessness and men as active beings who can choose to break off homelessness. The women are also portrayed as mothers in bad relationships with men and the home is viewed as an essential arena. The men are viewed as the norm for homelessness and identified as lonely and criminal individuals.
