Abstract
The purpose of this study was to illustrate the differences between the women's shelter movement's two national organisations, ROKS and SKR. I wanted to explore the background and emerge of the two national organisations and why ROKS where divided. The questions relevant for this study were: Which were the reasons for dividing ROKS? What questions does the two national organisations put their main focus on? Are there any ideological differences, and if so, how are those expressed? I used scientific theories regarding women battering and organizational models for women's shelters, as a tool to explain different ideological viewpoints. I also carried out interviews with women active in either ROKS or SKR. The differences seem to be less... (More)

I used scientific theories regarding women battering and organizational models for women's shelters, as a tool to explain different ideological viewpoints. I also carried out interviews with women active in either ROKS or SKR. The differences seem to be less significant than I had expected, and according to the persons I interviewed, they have become smaller since the division in 1996. Both ROKS and SKR are focusing on vulnerable groups of women, like disabled and immigrants. The way they are dealing with women battering differs between the two national organisations. You can either choose to be more careful with how you present your view of your problem. Or you can be more radical and pursue your policy regardless if you're seen as inconvenient. (Less)
