Summary/Abstract: In contemporary Romanian society, the battle that women take part of, in a quest for achieving equality in rights and opportunities with men, seems to have reached a dead end. Women are present in state mechanisms, even if in a small number, but instead of advocating for the rights of their fellow women, they borrow masculine attitudes and behaviors, trying to run from the ”female politician” label. I believe that one of the major causes for this is the stereotyped image of women perpetuated by mass media, therefore the research question explored in this research paper is: what are the ways in which online newspapers characterize the image of Romanian politician women? The emphasis is on gender stereotypes use by the media. Content analysis will be use in order to answer the main questions.
