Abstract [en]

This paper investigates the cultural, social, and economic factors contributing to inequality and discrimination experienced by midlife women at home and work in an extreme case. The paper focuses solely on midlife women's issues to explore the intersection between age and gender factors. Previous research has found that personal beliefs influence midlife crises and can affect both men and women. Furthermore, previous research has considered the factors of inequality for midlife women at home and work separately. The factors of inequality identified in previous research include discrimination and stereotyping based on age and gender, as well as violations against women. Furthermore, previous research has categorized the factors of inequality within families as individual and structural. This study aims to develop a better understanding of an extreme case of inequality in Malmö, Sweden. The study analyzes and compares the content of four qualitative interviews conducted with foreign and Swedish-born midlife women and one expert from Malmö. The job search expert illustrates how government policies force people, especially women, to work in harmful conditions. Additionally, this study discusses how economic factors, such as the new austerity policies, contribute to social inequality.
