Title Journalistic deontology on violence against women. Who produces the documents? A longitudinal disaggregated study by sex on authorships Summary The article focuses on the study of the authorship of deontological production on violence against women and the media in Spanish and Latin American contexts from 1999 to 2018, based on a sample of 58 guidelines. Objectives: to analyse the specific authorship by gender to identify men’s and women’s degree of involvement and whether there is a relationship between the gender of the authors’ of the guidelines and their level of commitment to them. Methodology: the use of empirical research techniques for the study of the authorship, from which five types have been established, women or majority of women, men or majority of men; mixed; a women’s collective; and institutional authorship (unknown). Results: 60% of the guidelines were written with women’s advice, while 9% has been attributed to men. In 10% of them men and women have participated equally, 7% presumably belongs to women’s collectives, and the remaining 14% of authorship is unknown. Moreover, this quantitative difference is related to the degree of commitment of the guidelines, that is, the guidelines attributed to women present higher levels of commitment than those produced by men. Keywords Violence against women, deontology, journalism, guidelines, authorship.
