From the Publisher"Gill's thorough contemplation of theoretical works along with empirical research projects provides an excellent and up-to-date account of the relationship of gender to and with the media."
"This book is extremely well written, which adds to its excellence as a text that combines an expert synthesis of the literature and Gill's own insightful analysis. Gill's book is suitable as a core text for any media studies, cultural studies and gender studies course as an update of Van Zoonen's 1994text, since it contains an analysis of a diverse body of work made suitable for undergraduate level thanks to Gill's accessible writing style."
Gender and Education
"Brilliant - a must-read for all media educators."
Newsletter of the Media Education Association
"Gender and the Media is excellent throughout and confronts the reader with an embarras de richesse of insights."
Feminism and Psychology
"Gender and the Media is a lively and stimulating read and works as an excellent introduction for students in the field of media and gender studies. It is also a grown-up book that moves beyond the current feminist preoccupation with 'girls', to a renewed focus on 'women' in their infinite variety. I strongly recommend it."
European Journal of Women's Studies
"A new masterpiece in the field of feminist media studies. Gender and the Media sheds new light on where we have been, and where we are going. It will be a staple of all media studies and women's studies classes for at least the next decade."
Andrea Press, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
"This is a thorough, lucid study which includes a good deal of new and original material, presenting it with admirable theoretical fluency yet in a clear and student-friendly way."
Angela McRobbie, Goldsmiths College
"Rosalind Gill's book is an invaluable contribution to the field of gender and media research. Well written and engaging, it offers an overview of contemporary representations of gender, a sense of the main theoretical and methodological approaches at issue and a grounding in the cultural politics of the field."
