International communication research has badly needed a collection such as this one for a very long time. If any book is likely to give the field a much-needed shot in the arm, this is it. The variety of its contents and the freshness of the analyses are genuinely stimulating. It will probably set off new research initiatives globally. -- John Downing, Southern Illinois University
This text provides a useful review of the literature about gender differences in news consumption. -- Debra Merskin, University of Oregon
Feminist Interventions in International Communication is exactly what we all need right now.
