In a series of absorbing case studies, this book focuses on the portrayal of Pakistani women in the global media. Analyzing Hollywood films, British documentaries, newspapers and mainstream U.S. magazines, this book traces sensational female figures of Pakistan - all of whom have been subject to patriarchal violence - highlighting the imagery of exploitation and eroticism. The authors' examination of these images addresses questions of spectatorship and fetishism in the age of globalization and the racial and imperial politics of liberal feminism.
