The chosen theoretical approach for the thesis is the feminist theory; intersectionality. To analyze how intersectionality is implemented in the resolutions a discourse theory analyze model is used. A comparison is also made between the resolutions to examine if the degree of intersectionality implemented has changed over time. The results show that there is intersectionality implemented in all resolutions. However, the range of intersectionality differs highly both within and between the documents. No conclusion could be drawn regarding the change of the degree of intersectionality over time. (Less)
