Dr Georgina Sutherland, Senior Research Fellow, Centre for Mental Health

There is growing international interest in the portrayal of violence against women in media and the impact of that reporting. Our study aimed to establish a baseline picture of the extent and nature of reporting violence against women by the Australian media. We explored the way media articulates and transmits narratives and ideas that perpetuate or challenge public opinion and will discuss study findings and implications in this presentation.
