Gender and the media --- Analysing gender in media texts --- Advertising and postfeminism --- News, gender, and journalism --- Talk shows : feminism on TV? --- Gender in magazines : from Cosmopolitan to Loaded --- Postfeminist romance --- Postfeminist media culture?
"How have advertisers responded to feminism? What should we make of the popularity of 'lad mags'? Is news a gendered product? Are men's bodies - as much as women's - new objectified in the media? Do shows like Oprah or Jerry Springer redraw the boundary between public and private? Is chick lit rewriting the romance? These are just some of the questions addressed in Gender and the Media. Written in a clear and accessible style, with lots of examples from Anglo-American media, the book offers a critical introduction to the study of gender in he media, and an up-to-date assessment of the key issues and debates." -- Jacket
