Description: In July of 1991, nineteen schoolgirls were killed and over 70 were raped or gang-raped in an attack by their male classmates at the St. Kizito Mixed Secondary School in Meru, Kenya. The explanations in the press included school "indiscipline" due to administrative mismanagement, academic stress from the country's educational system, cultural norms indigenous to the Meru ethnic group, and victim characteristics (as assumed in rape myths).

Dr. Steeves' study joins others in mass communications that show how media discourse may allow space for feminist interests within the dominant patriarchal ideology. In this instance the appearance of resistant views was significant in making alternative meanings available and in supporting women's growing antiviolence activism.
