These stories are, sadly, frequent and do not always make the news – but when they do, they must be told more sensitively.

Key Points: 
  • These stories are, sadly, frequent and do not always make the news – but when they do, they must be told more sensitively.
  • Critics say these images, often accompanied by language of surprise that “a nice guy” could commit such a horrific act, can hurt those affected by domestic abuse.
  • * Read more: Why victims of domestic abuse don't leave – four experts explain * ** The way media depicts domestic violence can affect the survivors depicted in the stories and their families, as well as others currently experiencing abuse.
  • Research has found that: “News stories often blame victims, fail to convey [domestic violence’s] prevalence or explore its causes, or generally provide decontextualised accounts of domestic violence.”

Language matters

  • Another frequent criticism of domestic abuse press coverage is the language used – friends or neighbours stating the alleged perpetrator was a “nice guy” or “never seemed odd or aggressive” – can also be damaging.
  • In others, it is part of balanced reporting, especially when someone hasn’t been convicted or the case isn’t legally active.
  • That’s the whole point.” Domestic abuse charities have called for journalists to reframe the language we use in cases of domestic abuse.
  • For further advice on how to report ethically on the subject of domestic abuse please refer to Women’s Aid media guidelines.

Following the death of a loved one, relatives usually have to complete a range of financial “death administration” tasks.

Key Points:
