Women file complaints on multiple discrimination – an intersectional analysis of the Annual Report 2014 from the Swedish Equality Ombudsman

The Annual Report 2014 from the Swedish Equality Ombudsman to the government shows that 50 percent of all the 1,949 discrimination complaints submitted to the Swedish Equality Ombudsman are filed by women. However, only 14 percent of these complaints (250 cases) involved sex discrimination. Women are, in other words, the subjects behind an important part of all complaints on the various discrimination grounds. The main grounds for complaints are ethnic belonging, followed by disability, age and sex. The statistics are similar to previous years, but in 2014 the numbers of complaints concerning age discrimination for the first time exceeded the numbers of complaints concerning sex discrimination, and age is a ground for complaints that often coincides with sex. Most complaints deal with the labour market.
