In the last fifty years, many of the institutional and societal barriers keeping Canadian women from public office have disappeared. Yet today, women hold only a quarter of the seats in the House of Commons - a proportion that rose by just seven percentage points between 1993 and 2011. In this illuminating study, Elizabeth Goodyear-Grant examines a significant obstacle still facing women in political life: gendered media coverage. Based on interviews with MPs and party leaders, and on an analysis of print and television media in the 2000 and 2006 federal elections, Gendered News reveals an unsettling climate that affects the success of women in office, and that could deter them from running at all.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Gendered News" is the first book on gender, media, and politics in Canada, and it adds hugely to scholarly debate about the role played by the mass media in political life. It examines gendered reporting from three angles: how it is manifested in election news coverage, who is responsible for generating it, and its impact on audience reception. Goodyear-Grant's rich analysis incorporates interviews with twenty-seven members of Parliament, including former party leaders, who provide their understandings of media bias.--Linda Trimble, co-editor of "Stalled: The Representation of Women in Canadian Governments"
