Overview

Gendered Media addresses the broad topic or gender and media, where "gender" is not simply a shorthand for woman but also embraces masculinity/ies and queer lesbian, and gay identities. Karen Ross provides the necessary historical context against which to read recent sex-and gender-based media phenomena such as Big Brother Terminntor, grils use of cell phones, women news editors, the Wonderbra generation the Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin phenomena, and more.

This book is an overview of the various, aspects of gender and media in one, volume. It provides introductory overviews to the various themes surrounding women, men, sexuality, and the ways in which these attributes are cross-cut by other demographics such as age, ethnicity, and disability. In this way, the book genuinely tries to provide a broad introduction, in one accessible volume to the ways in which gender in all its facets, engages with media.
