Women in Media: A Documentary Source Book.
Beasley, Maurine; Silver, Sheila
Chapters collected in this volume provide information, much of which is not generally available to the public, concerning the role of women in the mass media and the progress of the women's media movement. Discussions are arranged to illustrate the historical development of the movement from 1790 to the present. Chapters 1 through 15 analyze several historical events that contributed to development; the roles of such individuals as Mary Katherine Goddard, Anne Royall, Sarah J. Hale, and Margaret Bourke-White are examined. Chapters 16 through 24 illustrate the ways in which women began to take action for change. The response by the media industry (including the alternative media) to bring about change is the topic of chapters 25 through 29, and the last chapter examines the possible future of the women's media movement. Bibliographical notes, arranged by subject, are appended. (KS)
