    Discourses Surrounding Prostitution Policies in the UK.Judith Squires & Johanna Kantola - 2004 - European Journal of Women's Studies 11 (1):77-101.
    This article examines discourses invoked in the UK debates about prostitution and trafficking in women. The authors suggest that there are three striking features about these discourses: the absence of the sex work discourse, the dominance of the public nuisance discourse in relation to kerb-crawling and the dominance of moral order discourses in relation to trafficking. At a time when the UK is about to revise its sex laws, it is important to consider the discourses that frame prostitution policies in (...)

    Changing State Feminism.Joyce Outshoorn & Johanna Kantola (eds.) - 2007 - Palgrave-Macmillan.
    Most Western democracies established women's policy agencies to improve the status of women by the 1990s. However, the political context has changed drastically: developments such as welfare state reform, multilevel governance, regionalization and decentralization have impinged on opportunities for agencies and women's movements to mobilize. One of the book's key questions is how have women's policy agencies been able to develop, maintain or enhance their roles in the transformed political context and how have women's movements adapted to change in twelve (...)

  3. Feminist Political Analysis: Exploring Strengths, Hegemonies and Limitations.Emanuela Lombardo & Johanna Kantola - 2017 - Feminist Theory 18 (3):323-341.
    Austerity politics, war in the Middle East and at other borders of the European Union, the rise of nationalisms, the emergence of populist parties and politicians, Islamophobia and the refugee crisis are amongst the recent developments suggesting the need for discussions about the theories and concepts that academic disciplines provide for making sense of societal, cultural and political transformations. In this article, we focus on the capacities of feminist political theories to undertake this task. By assessing different feminist approaches to (...)

    Gendering Violence in the School Shootings in Finland.Jemima Repo, Ov Cristian Norocel & Johanna Kantola - 2011 - European Journal of Women's Studies 18 (2):183-197.
    Within barely a year, two school shootings shook Finland. The school shootings shocked Finnish society, forcing media, academics and experts, police and politicians alike to search for reasons behind the violent incidents. Focusing their analysis on the two main Finnish newspapers, Helsingin Sanomat and Hufvudstadsbladet, authoritative sources of information for Finland’s two language communities, the authors maintain that the Finnish case contributes to research on school shootings by evidencing the intimate linkages between the state, gender and violence. The authors argue (...)

    Feminist Resistance and Resistance to Feminism in Gender Equality Planning in Finland.Johanna Kantola & Elina Ikävalko - 2017 - European Journal of Women's Studies 24 (3):233-248.
    This article explores feminist resistance and resistance to feminism in gender equality planning in educational institutions in Finland. Focusing on feminist resistance signifies asking whether gender equality planning makes feminist resistance possible, and, if so, what does this resistance look like and what does it do? The article argues that feminist resistance is always intertwined with and in interplay with resistance to feminism. Analysing feminist resistance and resistance to feminism in gender equality work sheds light on the possibilities and challenges (...)
