Turning It On: A Reader in Women and Media

Turning It on: A Reader in Women & Media - Helen Baehr A collection of feminist essays on media influence on the perception of women in society. Well written and well researched, these essays are somewhat dated in today’s world. (I found this book at a charity book sale; it was published in 1996) However, this will still make an excellent research book for any student of media or feminism as it provides a fascinating look at the semiotic frameworks in society and how they create, enhance or perpetuate gender perceptions. If you’re interested in either feminism or media studies, this book is a good addition to your research library.
