Mateos de Cabo, Ruth and Gimeno, Ricardo and Martínez, Miryam and López, Luis (2011): Perpetuating gender stereotypes via the internet? an analysis of the women’s presence in Spanish online newspapers.
Download (240Kb) | Preview
In the present research we investigate possible predictors of the presence of women in Spanish online newspapers using an automatic content analysis over a three-month period. Results of the analysis reveal that Spanish online newspapers continue depicting women in a stereotyped manner. Women are still linked to traditionally ‘female’ sections, and they appear more frequently in news considered less important in terms of extension and publication day. The gender of the reporter also matters since female journalists tend to include more women in the news they report than their male peers.
