Abstract
Previous research into women's patterns of migration suggests a female flight from the European weaker peripheral regions to its urban cores, due to women's experience of being economically, socially, culturally, and normatively hampered compared to men in rural space. The thesis' attempt to corroborate these results on the municipal level, with the use of survey data from Swedish youth age 16-18, was not able to recreate the proposed trend that women migrate from the countryside to a larger degree than men. However, results did support the fact that certain migrational push- and pull factors are gendered and geographical along the urban-rural dimension.
