Abstract: Women are powerful symbols used by groups to advance particular ideas or perspectives. Owing to the symbolic significance women carry and the sentiments it may arouse, some groups see a need to control the power of women as symbols. The chosen medium of study to analyze this control is the newspaper. Newspapers have become one of the major vehicles for transmitting ideas, norms and social heritage of society from one generation to another and thus are worthy of study. In this thesis, I will be focusing on Berita Harian (henceforth BH). After independence in 1965, BH became the only Malay newspaper in Singapore catering to Singapore Malay community. This thesis focuses on how BH organizes and frames Malay women to bring forth particular messages, whether purposefully or coincidentally.
