Online gender-based violence is still in the spotlight in gender research and feminism in Indonesia. The reason is that reporting on this issue has not received more attention in the media. In addition, victims of cases of gender-based violence, including on online platforms, are often cornered in media coverage by the framing that is built. For this reason, this study wants to uncover how the social constructs carried out by mainstream mass media and special media about women write about this issue and how these two different media segments frame online gender-based violence in their news content. The mass media selected in this study are Kompas.com and Konde.co. The theories used in this research are Postmodern Feminism and Social Construction by Berger and Luckmann. The method used is Robert N. Entman framing analysis. The results show that Kompas.com is structured in building its narrative on the issue of violence against women, including online gender-based violence. Meanwhile, Konde.co is a more specific medium in building the narrative using the storytelling method.
