As part of a comprehensive study about violence against women (VaW) and media, we used a method of content analysis of newspapers, television and radio news in Mexico in two time periods in 2011 to determine the treatment of VaW in the news. 8, 610 press news sources, 4, 719 TV news sources and 3, 855 radio news sources were classified and analyzed from a national coverage media selection. The results show that visibility in the news does not contribute to present VaW as a social problem of public interest, related to the inequality between women and men. Instead, information about individual cases prevails, without mention or analysis of the social or structural problem. Also, different treatment and degrees of importance and visibility have been identified for each media. Television is the media that least mentions the responsibilities of the State and society in the fight for eliminating violence against women.
