Abstract

The media conveys crucial information, speaks out, and spreads awareness of violations of human rights. Pakistani media plays a vital role in human rights, especially in cases of violence against women. The present research is based on print media and its role in violence against women. This is a comparative study of popular and quality press on violence against women in Pakistan. Data were collected from two national newspapers of Pakistan, Daily Dawn (Quality press), and Daily Khabrain (Popular Press), with the help of content analysis. Researchers collected data on a coding sheet with defined categories. Framing theory was used to support the study. The findings of the study revealed that the popular press (Daily Khabrain) presents more negative news about violence against women and portrays a negative image of women with a negative tone compared to quality press. Additionally, it has been discovered that quality press typically devotes very little space in their daily news publications to the problems that women face, which serve as the primary catalyst for violence against women in Pakistan.
