Women, Media and Violence

Vidya Jain (Editor) Rashmi Jain (Editor)

In patriarchal societies, all over the world, women experience subordination on a daily basis regardless of the class to which they belong. Women have been treated as the 'other' who required subordination, control and differential treatment. Whether it is economic security, food security, health security, personal or political security, women and young girls are affected in very specific ways due to their physical, emotional and material differences and also due to the important social, economic, and political inequalities existing between women and men. Despite constitutional provisions and affirmative action by the government to bring in gender equality we find that women still face a lot of challenges. The recent spate of violence and rapes provoking widespread public outrage and unprecedented protests has led to a serious debate over the strategies and approaches that need to be evolved to counteract threats towards the safety of women. The book attempts to analyse and understand the myriad issues concerning women in contemporary society. Some of the articles offer media and literary reflections on gender issues. The book will be useful for scholars interested in gender and media studies.
