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



Abstract:

In 2012, policies labeled “women’s issues” became central to the electoral process. This paper sought to analyze the coverage of those issues by journalists on Twitter. Through a content analysis of selected tweets, results revealed that coverage focused on abortion, equal rights, rape, and the economy in the context of political strategy and candidates’ characteristics. Male politicians were cited the most, although female journalists were more likely than male colleagues to mention women and nonpoliticians.
