Abstract

This research discusses the representation of social actor in sexual violence issue in The Jakarta Post and The New York Times online newspapers. This research was carried out since sexual violence was a social issue that arises comprehensive responses and can be happened to all layers of society regardless of position, age, or other social factors. Besides, many parties speculated that the language in news article is possibly purposively taken by the journalist. Thus, the objective of this research is to reveal how social actors are represented in news reporting of sexual violence. In order to achieve the research objective, the writer applied qualitative method and library research since the writer gave detailed description and explanation in the research supported by social actor network theory proposed by Van Leeuwen (2008). The data were collected from the official website of The Jakarta Post and The New York Times. The data were in the form of phrase, clause or sentence from each news article. The findings show that to detach the actor (exclusion), both of newspaper mostly presented the actor especially the victim as passive agent and the perpetrator as active agent. The salient differences were found in the use of inclusion strategy. This confirms that the Jakarta Post presented the actor as specific individual such as by their gender, age, and occupation while the New York Times presented them by their surname and title such as “Professor”.
