Abstract (Swedish)
This bachelor thesis is based on interviews with six young feminists within the Church of Sweden, and aims to discuss how a combination of feminism and Christian faith is made possible.

This bachelor thesis is based on interviews with six young feminists within the Church of Sweden, and aims to discuss how a combination of feminism and Christian faith is made possible. I am investigating if these women experience personal inner conflicts between feminist values and a Christian faith and then how these women think of and manage these conflicts, and also if they have experiences bad treatment and resistance due to their feminist opinions, and what strategies they use and think are useful for changing patriarchal structures within the Church of Sweden. I have come to see that these women do not have so much experience of resistance directed at their feminist opinions, but they do sometimes have inner conflicts, which they manage to deal with by finding strength and courage in their faith and by accepting contradictions and difficult issues as a part of a Christian life. The combination of feminism and Christian faith is made possible by seeing the struggle for justice as collective and not an individual one and therefore interdependence is emphasized. The most important strategies are thus endurance and letting the feminist values influence all actions and discussions within the church. (Less)
