La imagen de la mujer en la prensa entre 1910-1915 y 2000-2005: estudio comparado
Analysis of the image of women in two newspapers of very different ideology comparing functions and roles assigned to women in two moments in history. From a social perspective, the image has improved in vindication; in the labour field it has increased in visibility, while still using their image and body for economic/businesses success; in education and literature a stereotyped image of women linked to romanticism and far away from science is still perceived. In the field of human rights, it is necessary to improve the treatment of news related to prostitution, GBV, etc. avoiding extending prejudices.
Key information on trends and challenges on women and the media:
