Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Using content analysis, we construct a media typology of maternal filicide. Utilizing a radical feminist paradigm, over 150 media accounts from 2005-2009 were analyzed for the themes of women who killed their children were depicted by the media. Preliminary analysis revealed media craft blameworthiness language consistent with the "mad versus bad" mother dichotomy. The policy implications of media irresponsibility, as well as, future research suggestions are discussed in detail.
