Power shift through ownership

Ownershift is a politically independent think tank with the purpose of shifting societal power structures through ownership. We want to substantially increase the proportion of owneresses within our lifetime to improve equality. Diversifying the gender distribution of those who own creates a better society for everyone and equal ownership grants women more power over their own lives and decisions.

What's next

Ownershift's reports

Our first report, Who owns Sweden? maps the current state of ownership in Sweden, focused on differences between men and women. Our second report Why isn’t ownership equal among men and women yet? explains 8 hurdles to an increase in female ownership.


The Ownershift purpose is to enable a substantial diversification of ownership in Sweden within the span of a lifetime.

We believe that we would have a better society for all if power through ownership were more equally distributed between men and non-men, as well as diversified overall.

We are aiming to push for shifts in all kinds of ownership, such as; land, real estate, capital and companies. The reason is to give the people we support power over their life decisions.

We are going to shape our practical methods based on relevant research about behaviour around risk and motivation.

We are going to use the power of knowledge, money and a revolutionary spirit to make rapid changes.

We are not going to make women and other minority owner groups adjust to the current systems, we are going to add a new system on top of the current one.
