There are very minimalist illustrations of women that could be found in the different columns of the newspapers.The core purpose of the study is to find out how women related stories or news are represented in two newspapers of Meghalaya and what is the significant of these news reports. The study also employs the coverage of front page news and the editorials which portrayed the woman.
