Intended for the use of students of communication, media, cultural and women's studies, this work presents a group of key texts which chart the central issue in the study of women and media and indicate the developments of what is now a significant body of work. The criterion for selection is less to produce a "canon" of work on women and media than to give students access to a broad range of material which represents the diversity and richness of studies, in terms of subject matter and authorship. A wide range of approaches and of media is covered, offering a strong indication of theoretical developments in the field. The editors' general introduction outlines the development of work relating to women and media; it highlights the key debates and theoretical approaches, discussing current and future developments.
