Women and Media: Challenging Feminist Discourse

Kiran Prasad (Editor)
Synopsis No Book on women’s studies can ignore the tremendous impact of mass communication on the modern world. This volume highlights the images and presentation of women in media, women as media professionals, the contribution of various bodies and women’s movement to gender justice. The call for gender justice and gender equality through the efforts of women’s organizations and eminent women has opened several hitherto closed areas to debate and public discourse in the media. The media is a subject of study in a range of disciplines but this book will be invaluable to faculty and students of communication, journalism, sociology, women’s studies, home science and extension, and development studies in learning the women’s inter-linkages with the media as audience, message producers and their representation in the media. With many women aspiring to work in the media, knowledge and understanding of the media institution, an understanding of the culture in which media function and thorough insights into the media, their uses, their significance in contemporary life and their modes of operation, this book will make fruitful reading. This book is designed keeping in mind the UGC Core Curriculum for the elective course on Women and Media offered at the Masters degree for students of Communication, Journalism, Women’s studies and Home Science. The different perspectives presented by scholars in this book will broaden the analyses of women’s issues in the media and also sharpen the skills of students to examine media from a critical feminist stand point.
