Election watch: Same ol’right
As we all know, they are trying to get away from that image now. One thing they forgot, however, is the composition of candidates on the ballot. The Conservative Party still don’t have equal representation of women, and they have no representative with foreign background close to ending up in the Riksdag.
This morning it was revealed that two Conservative top-candidates in Gothenburg have “booked women who will dress lightly, serve drinks, and parade in fashionable underwear and swimming suits” for their election kick-off. Women as entertainment, that is. Both candidates are white males, of course.
The Conservative party leadership in Stockholm is grunting as the same ol’right pops out. This was not according to the plan, they must think. We must pretend to strive for gender equality now, the leadership in Stockholm tells one and all.
To make use of the subordination of women in society to please rich, white, male conservatives during an election kick-off is, unfortunately and surprisingly, still possible in an election campaign in Sweden.
