Theused method is a quantitative content analysis, in which we have analyzed 221 articles, allregarding a public couples divorce. All of the selected six couples are heterosexual, since ourstudy is based on the heterosexual norm. We have examined how much space the woman and the man receive, who gets the mostquotes and whether the man or woman is mentioned the most times. We have also examined the gender of the journalist, to see if that makes any difference in the portrayal according to the different genders. These aspects of our study are connected to the theory of framing. We have also examined who talks the most about their children, who gets mentionedconnected to their work and who talks about appearance. Also who is portrayed asemotionally weak, strong and neutral. These aspects of our study is connected to YvonneHirdman’s theory about the gender contract.Our results has shown that the woman gets more space in the articles. It is also clear that theman does not get that much space we thought he would, according to theory. The man ismore often neutral, meaning that he does not show as much emotion as the woman. It is morecommon that the women talks about children. We also noticed that the journalists gender hasno impact on the portrayal of the different genders.In conclusion we mean that our study both confirm and contradict the stereotypes we wanted to investigate. Some, as the one with the women being the one who talks the most about children, is strengthened by theory. Some, as the man being the strong one, is not.
