Women and Media by Dr. Cindy Lont is a fast moving program with visuals of past and present media and interviews with Dr. Maurine Beasley, Sheila Gibbons and Junior Bridge, all foundational scholars in the field of women and media. The program focuses on four areas: the reclaimed history of women who created media, the media portrayal of women, women's inclusion in the media workforce and how men perceive media differently than women which affects what we read, see and hear from the media. Women and Media is a perfect introduction to Women, Minorities and Media Courses or a section on media in a Women's studies course.
Winner: Gracie Award and Davey Award. "A first rate examination of the history of women in the Media, from print to television to motion pictures and their impact on American culture. It's about time someone put this formidable curriculum on DVD!" - Lynda Obst (Film Producer, Sleepless in Seattle, The Fisher King, How to Lose a Guy in 10 days).
