Topic/Background: There exists research about hunting. There also exists research about men. And there exists even more research about individualization. But there exists none or only few data about women that hunt. And nobody, as I found, has ever connected this issue to the problematic of individualization. But that does not mean that hunting women should not get any attention, in what connection ever. Objective: The task of this thesis is to connect hunting women to the individualization process in first case and gender role in second case. It is to show that the history of hunting has changed significantly during the latest years. Design: The plan of this thesis is to analyze five interviews and two magazines with focus on following question: Is the fact that women hunt possible to explain with the individualization process? Conclusion/Results: Hunting has changed recently. More and more women start hunting. Reasons and starting point why that is fact can for example be taken out of individualization theories. Women start hunting because society is changing and how they are getting individualized.
