#mysteryismisogyny – against media support of the ‘mysterious family homicide’ narrative
Reclaim the Night Perth condemns the practice of reporting family annihilators as though males killing their children and sometimes partners/ exes is not a pattern but simply a mystery occurrence.
We note that this often occurs when the media quote police or neighbours but ask no experts on Violence Against Women to comment.
- using the #mysteryismisogyny hashtag on twitter, Facebook, tumblr, and other social media, when you come across a news report that contradicts the responsible reporting guidelines.
- tweet and tumble/ FB etc, referring to this note from Reclaim the Night Perth on better reporting practices, using the #mysteryismisogyny hashtag.
