Women Transforming Communications
Global Intersections

Edited by:

July 1996 | 400 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Written to share "herstories" with both women and men, Women Transforming Communications provides a one-of-a-kind account of the strategies for liberating communication systems from gender and cultural biases, especially in those areas in which women and minorities are traditionally excluded because of limited and controlled access. The renowned contributors to this reader fight fire with fire, using mass media communication such as newspaper, magazine, and television journalism, as well as communication research and scholarship, to ensure full inclusion of women and minorities in all areas. A platform for feminist discourse on topics such as pornography, grassroots communication, and culturally diverse organizations each chapter voices issues important to women entering the 21st century. Brought together, these voices clamor thunderously for definitive and positive social change. This exciting work provides an account of the strategies for transforming communication systems that are not inclusive. Students and professionals in communication, media studies, sociology, women's studies, cultural studies and ethnic and gender studies will benefit by witnessing this account of history in progress.
