Representations of Endometriosis in the Popular Press: "The Career Woman's Disease"
Keywords:Endometriosis, Mass media, Fertility, Women's Health
AbstractThis study explores how endometriosis is represented in the popular press. Content analysis of sixty-four magazine articles published between 1975 and 2001 was conducted. Common themes appearing in magazine articles were examined. Results indicate the popular press represents endometriosis primarily as a fertility problem. Improvements in media coverage of endometriosis are recommended.
