Comprised of original research in diverse genres and medias, "Women and Media: International Perspectives" brings together eight international scholars to explore key issues of the gender-media relation. This work: provides important insights into how gender is implicated in media industries; address key issues of the gender-media relation, from an analysis of news media's coverage of women politicians, to the marketing of 'girl power', to strategizing for equality in newsrooms; highlights the theme that media have the potential both to reinforce the status quo in power arrangements in society but also to contribute to new, more egalitarian ones; and, includes an introduction by the editors that carefully maps the contours of the international struggle between feminists and the media, section overviews, bibliographies, key terms, and discussion questions.
