DOCUMENT INFO
Description: [...] it is that we can fast forward 160 years since the Women's Right's Convention and that first wave of feminism to our contemporary media environment, and find that women are still stereotyped and symbolically annihilated by the news media; that women still don't hold many managerial positions in news media; and that (small surprise) women read newspapers in smaller numbers than men do. Rivers puts it this way: "The fun house mirror of the news media serves women ill in several ways: first, by creating storylines that do not reflect the reality of the lives of the majority of women, and also by projecting a distorted image of both historical and present-day feminism-the vehicle through which women's rights were advanced and secured."
