This text focuses specifically on three interrelated sets of questions with respect to gender, politics and communication: How do serious and popular media alike represent male and female politicians, how do they frame their politics and how can these representations and frames be explained? What is the role of mainstream and movement media for the women's movement, how are feminist issues covered in the media, and what kinds of media-related activities do women's movements undertake? How are the social and political concerns of ordinary women voiced in the media - in talkshows in particular - and how does this different popular platform interact with mainstream and feminist politics? The first section of the book is about how women active in national politics are represented in the media. The second section deals with communicative practices and successes and failures of feminist movements in different parts of the world. The final section deals with the talkshow, an analysis of which raises new and problematic issues about the mediazation of feminist concerns.
