Dear Amy,

I hope you can answer my question. I'm doing a project about how feminists view women in the media. I hope you have some useful info.

Thanks!

Sara from Sweden!

   

Sara,

That question involves more than a short answer. There are so many images and so many interpretations. There are several things already listed at the site, and there are also groups like Women's Media Center and WIMN, Women In Media and News. Both of these resources are mostly news media, but in terms of critiques of images of women, try the work of Jean Kilbourne and Susan Douglas.

Good luck,

- Amy
