Abstract


It is argued in this paper that media give significant space to issues related to women education. The present study is focused on the coverage made by the Daily Dawn and the Daily News. These Karachi-based papers have large circulation in almost all big cities of the Pakistan. Analysis of 720 issues of the two newspapers shows that our premier newspapers provide only scanty coverage to the issues of women's education. According to the finding pioneer Daily Dawn provided negligibly more space for news items concerning women education (0.053 percent) than the news (0.0425 percent). In the same way, the Daily Dawn provided more space (0.279 percent) as compared to Daily News (0.183 percent) for non-news items. It is found that women issues receive attention less that they deserved. However, the issues like crime, business; national and international politics are covered in detail.
