From the Publisher"Compelling biographical sketches of 429 women in U.S. television. Lowe covers both controversial, groundbreaking series, and popular programs, whether long-running or short-lived, considering social context and the protrayal of women; she is careful to assess the depiction of Asian, black, Hispanic, and rural female characters. This is of interest to larger libraries with collections in careers, broadcasting, and women's studies."
Library Journal, Starred Review
"This is of interest to larger libraries with collections in careers, broadcasting, and women's studies."
"This volume is as entertaining as it is thought-provoking and particularly notable for its inclusion of little-known mavericks from the early days of the medium. Recommended for larger public and academic libraries."
"The volume contains a great deal of useful information for the general reader interested in television and women, and it will likely receive heavy use in libraries where undergraduates write term papers on (ever) popular culture topics."
