This essay aims to research how administratives working with issues of equality, LGBT, ethnicity and religion in the Swedish Armed forces considers equality and equality work. Drawing on theories that consider organizations as influenced by constructions of gender, theories on state, nation and citizenship the analysis focus on what equality means in the context of the Swedish Armed forces. My understanding is that the Swedish Armed forces is a hierarchic masculine organization in its structure and in its culture. The analysis concludes that the administratives understand equality, LGBT, ethnicity and religion in relation to and within the frame of the organization. The analysis also establishes how the administratives connect the profit of equality work with notions of physical safety and safety of the organization. Using diversity in the same context as equality is a way of bringing new meaning to the worn out practice of equality which is a practice connected with guilt. Finally I conclude that the administratives are hopeful in their aim for equality in the Swedish Armed forces, mainly depending on the support of the leaders of the organization. (Less)
