The book entitled Skelett i garderoben - medtoder för att upptäcka ojämställdhet" (Skeletons in the closet - methods for discovering inequality), presents methods for reviewing and changing procedures and attitudes with respect to men's and women's conditions in the organization's everyday activities.
It is a common misconception that equality prevails – at least, in our own workplaces. We do not see inequality, because we are so used to it and because we have learned that working life must be organized as it has always been. But it is there; concealed by structures and old notions, like skeletons in a locked closet.
Only when we scrape the surface and begin to examine procedures and attitudes can we begin to see how conditions differ for men and women. And it is only when the differences become visible that we can initiate a conscious effort of change for equal treatment.
