What is included with this book?


This landmark volume has been considerably expanded and updated in this new edition. With particular emphasis on race and culture, leading scholars in the field provide compelling analyses of the ways in which feminist theory and perspectives have been incorporated into mass communication. They examine the status of women in the mass communication industries, from sporadic breakthroughs to the continuing sexism and economic inequities that pervade the profession.
