Editorial Reviews


“[Women, Violence, and the Media: Readings in Feminist Criminology] snapped me out of my lawyer’s myopic view of gendered violence and begged me to consider different perspectives and frameworks. [The book] reflects the work of committed scholars from different disciplines, all seeking the same final destination.” —Signs

“The book collects well-executed content analyses focused on an unusually coherent set of statements about the importance of sociological thought and criticism of mass media organs for telling different stories. The prose and displays of data are suitable for classroom use, perhaps in courses on race/class/gender and media. A cover-to-cover journey should certainly tutor any reader in the difference between sociological approaches to violence and the medical/individualist/sensational angles that these authors criticize.”—Gender & Society

“Women, Violence, and the Media emphasizes the key themes and critical skills required for media literacy, and the volume offers guidelines for readers on conducting their own research.”—Media Report to Women


“This book offers a much needed documentation of the variety of ways that women and violence are framed in a broad range of both fictional and non-fictional media accounts. Women are analyzed as both the victims and perpetrators of violence through a gendered, raced, classed and global lens.” (Joanne Belknap, Sociology, University of Colorado at Boulder)
