Overview

The First Edition of Whose News?: The Media and Women’s Issues (1994) quickly became an international classic which was widely used both by students and practitioners. This new and updated edition of the 1994 classic addresses the set of questions that has arisen in recent years concerning women’s access (as users) to the media and to information, their participation in media and communication structures, and their portrayal and perspectives in media content. The Second Edition retains its unique gender analysis of media content, and situates, views and evaluates the coverage of gender issues in the media within the context of recent trends in both the economy and the media industry. Employing a novel and nuanced methodology, it offers a distinctive view of the history of both the media and the women’s movement in India at the beginning of the 21st century.

Editorial Reviews

Technology and Development Gender

Whose News? The Media and Women’s Issues broadens our understanding of the performance of media in relation to issues that are of special concern to women.

Booknews
A detailed, systematic analysis of press coverage (English language press as well as Hindi, Tamil, Gujarati, and Bengali language press) of five issues related to Indian women and a critique of the portrayal of women on prime time television between 1979 and 1988. The five issues are: dowry-related deaths; rape; the right to maintenance of Muslim divorcees; the misuse of sex determination tests such as amniocentesis; and the re-emergence of the banned practice of "sati" (widow burning).
