  • Episode 6: Listening to the victims voices

    6 DIC 2023 · In this episode, Trine Askholm interviews co-writer of the book and Gender Researcher, Lea Skewes, from University of Southern Denmark and Anette Borchorst, who is Professor Emeritus in Political Gender Research from Aalborg University. As a listener, you will get to know that there has always been sexual harassment. It was not until the 1970's that a concept was invented in the U.S. Only then could the phenomenon be addressed in a holistic way. After almost three decades of trying to break through with the knowledge about sexual harassment and sexism came the Metoo movement and things started rolling. The Metoo Movement has influenced the debate and conversation about sexual harassment. With the Metoo debate people have begun to realize that we have a problem – worldwide and here in Denmark. You will learn more about solving the structural problems of sexism and sexual harassment. You will get to know that victims often feel very alone with their experiences. And that many victims think others assume that “you probably let it happen”. Trine Askholm asks Skewes and Borchorst questions on: - Can we accept flirting at work? - Do we in Denmark have rules to protect the victims or their violators? - Who is responsible for sexism and sexual harassment? - Is there a difference between your rights being employed or volunteering in an organization? - Do you know what to do if you experience sexism or if you witness sexism at your workplace? In the end of the episode, we look into more vignettes, dealing with examples of everyday sexism, sexual harassment with sexual undertones. With the vignettes we get insights into what happens to individuals who face everyday sexism repeatedly, and the fear of damaging their own careers if one draws attention to the problem. The episode includes talk about what happens when the issue of quotas is brought up among colleagues. The guests also discuss the myth “she probably got the job because she is a woman”. Guests: Lea Skewes, Postdoc Gender Researcher at University of Southern Denmark, and Anette Borchorst Professor Emeritus in Political Gender Research from Aalborg University.

  • Episode 7: Sexism with a human rights perspective

    6 DIC 2023 · In this episode, Trine Askholm interviews co-writer of the book and Associate Professor Jo Krøjer from Roskilde University, and Bjarke Oxlund, who is Director of Equal Treatment at the Institute of Human Rights.  You will be able to hear Bjarke Oxlund explain why we have human rights and how he and his colleagues work with human rights at the Institute of Human Rights in Denmark. We talk about the fact, that most people are against discrimination, and everybody think that in Denmark we have that part under control. But in fact, we don’t, discrimination happens every day. Jo Krøjer tells that typically, when you ask women how it is with equal rights in Denmark, their answers would differ whether they have experienced parenthood or not being in the labor market. A lot of women experience that their employer is not as keen to secure their right to a safe and sound work environment as they are for the men. Jo Krøjer and Bjarke Oxlund gives the listeners their perspectives about the European directives on equal treatment that we have implemented in Denmark and they discuss the general skepticism when it comes to everything that you might relate to as 'political correctness'. Many studies shows that the Danish level of modern sexism is very high compared to any comparable society. And modern sexism consists exactly of, at one hand, claiming that you are for gender equality, but on the other hand, being blind to all the gender inequality that happens, and that you perhaps are a partaker in. Bjarke Oxlund tells that the EU legislation and the EU policies on gender equality has been a progressive force in the Danish political environment transparency as a solution to many of the problems for instance equal pay. In the interview we come around important aspects of human rights when we talk about psychical assault and victim blaming, consent legislation/ Samtykkelovgivningen, Danish humor and sexist myths. Guest: Associate Professor Jo Krøjer from Roskilde University, and Bjarke Oxlund, Director of Equal Treatment at the Institute of Human Rights.
