Sexist Headlines August 4, 2017

Posted by geoff in News.

Here’s the headline from NBC:

Suicides in Teen Girls Hit 40-Year High

and from ABC:

CDC report: Suicide rate among teen girls at all-time high

and from Yahoo:

What The Numbers Say About Teen Girls & Suicide

…and here’s the chart from the NBC article:

nbc chart on teen suicides

Seeing as the male teen suicide rate is about 3X the female rate, and that the male suicide rate is climbing at least as fast, it seems like the headlines could have been a bit more balanced.
