Synopsis

Feminism, Multiculturalism, and the Media Global Diversities by Angharad N. Valdivia

The multiplicity of voices in this volume illustrate the contradictions inherent in multicultural and feminist perspectives on the media. This book breaks new ground by exploring intersecting variables of oppression, from the personal to the political. Compelling case studies illustrate how issues of gender, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation and global origin affect the media coverage, portrayal and reception of individuals. The chapters present theoretical perspectives plus examples of methodologies, focus on topics of current interest and represent a variety of media.
