This research analyzed the level of gender equity and stereotyping that exists in one of the most long-lived and important newspapers of México: El Norte, of Grupo Reforma, examining the gender of the authors of the notes, of the quoted sources, but mainly of their protagonists, taking into account the content of the headlines, photographs, sections in which they appear, their occupations, and if they are treated or not as victims. We confirm that the same results that has been historically observed worldwide, are replicated today at our local level: Men are overexposed in all aspects: written articles, prominence, testimonies, expert opinion, victim role and photographs; furthermore, they appear mainly in articles about politics and sports, while women in those of the show business. Despite that our research confirms what already has been found in other latitudes, we discuss some signals of change.
