The multiplicity of voices in this volume illustrates the contradictions inherent in multicultural and feminist perspectives on the media. Feminism, Multiculturalism, and the Media breaks new ground by exploring intersecting variables of oppression, from the personal to the political. The volume begins with feminist analyses but uncovers marginalized "others" in every area. These compelling case studies illustrate how issues of gender, race, class, sexual orientation, global origin, and ethnicity affect the coverage, portrayal, media production, and reception of every human being. The chapters present theoretical perspectives, provide examples of methodologies, focus on topics of current interest and global relevance, and represent a variety of media. An essential addition for any individual or classroom interested in critical perspectives on media, especially for courses on women in the media and minorities and the media.
