This book examines the complex issue of familicide-suicide - the murder of a partner and children followed by suicide. The purpose of the book is two-fold: to advance a feminist sociological analysis of familicide as a form of gender-based violence, and to examine how it is reported on in news. The first section contextualises interpretations of familicide against the dual ascendancy of - and contestation around - feminist and mental illness discourses in public policy and debate. Advancing a feminist sociological analysis of familicide-suicide, it shows the value of 'continuum thinking' for understanding complex and varied forms of gender-based violence. Section Two examines Australian news reporting on familicide-suicide, showing the ways cultural assumptions about domestic and family violence and mental illness shape news reporting. It analyses how discourses of gender, disability, age, and the 'family' serve to rationalise certain news frames and reflects on the thorny ethical issues inherent in reporting on familicide. Arguing for a nuanced approach to gender-based violence and how it is reported, this book will be of interest for scholars of gender and violence, as well as media and journalism.Vis mere
