MORITZ, Maria Lúcia  e  RITA, Mayara Bacelar. Print Midia and Gender: constructing the Impeachment of Dilma Rousseff. Intercom, Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Comun. [online]. 2020, vol.43, n.2, pp.203-223.  Epub 04-Set-2020. ISSN 1980-3508.

Despite being re-elected as President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff was temporarily suspended 17 months after taking office. On August 31, 2016, she was finally ousted as president. Political parties, Congress, the judiciary, the media – among others – played relevant roles in the process of impeachment. In this paper it is proposed analyzing the role of the press along the months preceding the ousting of the re-elected head of state. Considering that the media plays a central role in the current democratic system, the gender biased performance of the press along the months prior to the impeachment was fundamental to determine the outcome. The analysis is concentrated on the newspapers Folha de S. Paulo and O Globo, published from April to September 2016. Qualitative/quantitative methodology was used to count and categorize articles and editorials for further analytical treatment, considering specialized literature. The results obtained suggest those newspapers coverage favored the impeachment, revealing some amount of sexism.
