Women, Scientists, Agitators: Magazine Portrayal of Rachel Carson and Theo Colborn.
Corbett, Julia B.
Journal of Communication, v51 n4 p720-49 Dec 2001
Utilizes a theoretical framework of the media's role in reporting conflict and uncertain science, and feminism and science in a thematic analysis of magazine coverage given Rachel Carson and "the Rachel Carson of '90s," Theo Colborn. Notes that Carson and Colborn's identities as women, scientists, and agitators led critics to charge that their work was nonscience or they were nonfeminine. (SG)
