Summary
This original new work demonstrates the troubling evidence that news coverage in American cities routinely depicts criminal violence against females differently than males. News Coverage of Violence Against Women discusses this tendency and how it perpetuates traditional, inegalitarian stereotyping of both men and women. Author Marian Meyers combines original research with qualitative textual analysis to disclose the underlying ideology, myths, and assumptions within news coverage, pointing out how news broadcasting affects our view of the world and how we live our lives. She also makes a strong case for the re-examination of crime news from a feminist perspective and for a broadening of traditional understandings of the social construction of news to include issues of gender, race, and class. News Coverage of Violence Against Women is an eye-opening work that will be of great interest to students, researchers, and professionals in a wide range of areas including communication, media studies, mass communication, sociology, women's studies, cultural studies, popular culture, ethnic studies, and gender studies
