This paper uses content analysis to examine how news publications reporting on the 1993-2007 femicide in Ciudad Juarez portrayed the murder victims for U.S. audiences. The close proximity of Ciudad Juarez to the U.S. border and our shared economic and social ties merit further investigation on how the victims are presented in state and nationally circulating newspapers to the audiences they inform. Research questions were designed using inductive and deductive methods which allowed for an in-depth understand of the contested framing done by C. Juarez state officials compared to community members or activists. By examining news reports, this research assesses the use of contested frames and how this impacted resource distribution and the concern of audiences in the U.S. for stopping a more than decade long femicide. Additionally, the research critically examines the way the frames are utilized to present the victims within the media; showing how negative framing of victims' lifestyle or personal choices can shape the way society thinks about the victims of femicide and gendered violence in general.
