SOCIOLOGY. "This book investigates the meanings behind the representations of women in popular culture through primarily qualitative textual analyses of films, television programs, the news, magazines, music videos, and advertising. The issues explored are: what mediated popular culture says about women and their roles in contemporary society; whether and how the mediated representation of women addresses real women's goals and potential; how the popular media negotiate the tension between cultural constraint and social changes within their portrayal of women; and whether women are still the victims of symbolic annihilation by the media. It also addresses the role of the media in maintaining and supporting a patriarchal world view, and it argues that the representat ions of women in mediated popular culture are fractured, reflecting multiple and often contradictory images.
