Sammanfattning: The purpose of this study is to clarify whether there are rape myths in Swedish news media’s reports of rapes. The news media chosen to be analyzed are Aftonbladet and Dagens Nyheter (DN), which are two of Sweden’s biggest newspapers. The articles are selected from Mediearkivet, the keywords used to find relevant newspaper articles are rape and sexual crimes. We have used a qualitative text analysis based on critical discourse analysis. The results are presented using the concept of Christie’s Ideal Victim and rape myths combined. The concept of ideal victim means that certain victims meet criteria that justify them as victims. Rape myths are stereotypes about victims, rapists and rapes. It is considered important to investigate whether it appears in Swedish newspapers due to the power of the news media's influence on public perceptions and the lack of research on Swedish newspapers. The newspaper articles have been analyzed using an analysis scheme based on previous research and the current theories. The results of the study shows that the prevalence of rape myths in the news media differs depending on the characteristics of the victim.
