Overview

In this book over 30 women describe, from as many perspectives, a veritable revolution in communications that is currently transforming the world's communications system as we know it.

The contributors illustrate how this revolution moves through three phases from initial visions, to overcoming obstacles, to creating a plan for the future. Most of the chapters are written by those who have been creating the transformations. The book is designed to share with women and men more 'herstories' of strategies of empowerment to transform communications systems which are not inclusive, especially as they concern issues important to women entering the twenty-first century.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Not about how women are attaining parity in the communications industry, but how feminists are successfully using modern mass media to counter the dominant patriarchal perspective on such issues as economic development, violence in partnerships, censorship and pornography, courtroom justice for women and children, women in sports, and ethnic and language minorities. The accounts include television, film and video, book publishing, newspapers, magazines, and other media either run by women or in which women work. Paper edition (unseen), $26.95. Annotation c.
