The Norm Breaking Woman : A qualitative study of how three perpetrators are represented differently in three newspapers based on gender (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to examine how tree newspapers covered the murder of Arboga and the murder in Byxelkrok. The questions examined were: how news journalism attributes crime-cases depending on gender and what kind of similarities and difference’s are at work between how a female or male perpetrator is represented in the evening press versus the local press. We made a discourse analysis of 43 articles from different time periods depending on the case. The result shows that the female criminal is more judged and more personal represented by the media then the male criminal. The digital press, both at the local and the national levels shows a difference in reporting depending on the case. Regarding the female perpetrator the local press became more sensational than they usually are when it comes to news reporting and included more details in the particular case. Regarding the male perpetrator the local press were more subjective and were careful about the information that they gave out to the public, but the national press gave out information same as they usually do.
