Abstract :

Newspapers play a pivotal role in broadcasting issues to the public forum for discussion. Whilst hegemonic power is neither monolithic nor unassailable, the media perpetuates ascriptions of normative gender roles as defined by the dominant elites. Existing both in and between the public and private spheres of society, it then ascribes these values to specific issues and news stories. As a communication tool, one would expect Indian media coverage of rape to change as a response to the unrest emerging in civil society.
