To our help we interviewed seven social workers whom work with financial assistance. These interview persons works in two different municipalities with a various number of inhabitants. To our study we used the qualitative method and semi-structured interviews. The questions were divided into different themes where sexuality, contraceptives and gender were the main issues. With help from gender theories we then analyzed the responses from the social workers and also using relevant research regarding sexual and contraceptive health. Our conclusion is that gender is an influencing factor in the daily work with financial assistance. In questions regarding parental leave and contraceptive use the gender order is still dominant. A reason for this could be the work load for the social workers and also the fact that none of our interview persons had been educated in matters regarding equality between women and men. This study’s result should be considered a guideline rather than a veracity since it is a small study with a minor group of interview persons. (Less)
