About this book

An exploration of the representations of the women's movement, its members, and their goals between 1968 and 2008 in the British and American press. Examining over 1100 news articles, the book analyses the nuanced ways feminism has historically been supported, marginalized and debated in the mainstream press.

Reviews

'The book is easy to read, thorough and fascinating, taking the reader on a journey through feminist history between 1968-1982 as seen by the news. The langauge is readable and not filled with academic jargon, whilst never compromising on meticulous research, sharp analysis and interesting conclusions.' Bristol Indymedia Blog
