In ‘SlutWalk, Feminism and News,’ Mendes uses the global SlutWalk movement as a case study to assess how, and to what extent, the relationship between SlutWalk and feminism has been represented in global mainstream news. The chapter asks to what extent feminism has been erased or made visible? Are SlutWalks and its participants constructed as part of a larger feminist movement? What kinds of feminism are addressed in coverage? Through analysing 284 news articles, Mendes argues that mainstream news media erased feminism, not only through its wide-scale absence, but through active repudiation and insistence on its redundancy, thereby contributing to a long-standing backlash against feminism.
