News media plays a key role in shaping the public discourse and can have a profound influence on people’s attitudes, beliefs and behaviours. This current research has collected all news reports of violence against women and men and stories about gender—ranging from sexism to role models—from the ABC news online in 2016. By collating and reviewing these stories this study will contribute both a quantitative content analysis and a critical comparative visual and linguistic analysis with the aim to identify patterns and tendencies to reveal factors that may perpetuate violence, gender stereotypes and inequity in news media and beyond.
