Women and Girls in the News
Here is a must-read from Echidne at Echidne of the Snakes, who kept a notebook to track how women and girls were covered in the news.
When I leafed through the diary a year later I was shocked by what I found, and especially shocked because I only really followed the fairly liberal or neutral sources of news. I expected the news coverage to be neutral, on average. Instead, everything, every single thing about women was negative. Women or working women or mothers or girls had problems, were a problem, and even good news were presented as "good news but..."
Sad, but not surprising - it's always us women who are The Problem. Always.
