The timely, well-written pieces in Gender & Pop Culture manage to convey some of the intellectual excitement - and dare I say it, fun - that the best in media studies and feminism can stimulate. Students and scholars alike will appreciate how the wide-ranging chapters in this volume provide greater depth and context to some of the great debates of our time about the effects of media' that take place every day in university classrooms and around kitchen tables. This should be required reading for anyone who's ever watched TV, gone to a movie or put on a pair of headphones! ~ Jackson Katz, Ph.D., creator of Tough Guise 2: Violence, Manhood and American Culture and author of The Macho Paradox An important addition to the fields of gender and media studies, this excellent compilation will be useful to students and teachers in a wide range of disciplines. The research is solid, the examples from popular culture are current and interesting, and the conclusions are original and illuminating. It is certain to stimulate self-reflection and lively discussion. ~ Jean Kilbourne, Ed.D., author, feminist activist and creator of the Killing Us Softly: Advertising's Image of Women film series An ideal teaching tool: the introduction is intellectually robust and orients the reader towards a productive engagement with the chapters; the contributions themselves are diverse and broad in terms of the subject matter covered; and the conclusion helps students take what they have learnt beyond the classroom. I can't wait to make use of it. ~ Sut Jhally, Professor of Communication, University of Massachusetts at Amherst Founder & Executive Director, Media Education Foundation Gender & Pop Culture takes no prisoners in describing the influences of patriarchy on a wide range of media. With up-to-date examples, strongly worded arguments, and ideas for resistance, these chapters are sure classroom conversation starters. ~ Lisa Wade, Founder of Sociological Images and Professor at Occidental College
