Father absence

Over at the Justice’s Posterous blog site, they’ve noted the absence of the term “father” in many of the domestic violence and even family court-related articles as a form of media bias – because, on the contrary, they often identify the woman as a mother.

Check out her site here and look for the September 8th entry: Justice’s Posterous

Here are the article she references: Man accused of bringing handgun to child custody hearing and Soldier sentenced to 6 years for incest, sex assault

Check out these too:
