Summary/Abstract: This article presents the results of a project about the re-construction of acts of violence against women and children in Canadian and Romanian newspapers. The results showed both the main differences and similarities regarding this issue. The data stressed that although violence against women and children is a world-wide social phenomena, its media “coverage” was strongly dependent on the peculiarities of the society in which it has occurred, and has a national character Moreover, the way in which the journalists re-construct the violent acts against women and children seemed to obey to the “infotainment” editorial logic that globally fixes the present public agenda.
