Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Media critic Douglas deconstructs the ambiguous messages sent to American women via TV programs, popular music, advertising, and nightly news reporting over the last 40 years, and fathoms their influence on her own life and the lives of her contemporaries. Photos.

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.

Review

Review:
"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
