The Case of Female Genital Cutting: Newspaper Coverage in Ghana, The Gambia, Kenya and the United States

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



Abstract:

Media play an important role in explaining female genital cutting (FGC) to the public and policymakers. This quantitative content analysis analyzed 15 years of newspaper coverage of FGC in four countries with varying FGC rates: the U.S., Ghana, The Gambia and Kenya. The study found that coverage is minimal and inconsistent, so if media are to fulfill their watchdog role with regards to FGC, an increase in coverage and wider range of frames are needed.
