9780812925302: Where the Girls Are: Growing Up Female with the Mass Media

Review:

An insightful, witty, and well-written analysis of the effects of mass-media on women in late 20th-century American culture. Douglas cuts through the fluff that spews from the tube with a finely-honed sense of the absurd that can forever change (or minimally, inform) how you perceive the changing portrayals of women by the media. The only book I know of that has been given highest recommendations by Gloria Steinem, The McLaughlin Group, and Amazon.com.

From the Publisher:

"A first-rate analysis of the music, movies and TV imagery that helped shape female psyches."--Newsweek

"A lively, clever, and illuminating book. Susan Douglas performs the culture critic's formidable task with savvy, raucous wit, and exactly the right kind of ambivalence."--Mark Crispin Miller
