I have to do a project and I have chosen to do some research into women and how they are portrayed on television, i.e. are they looked on as sexual objects? At the moment I am finding it very hard to find any information on this subject. Would you know of any books, journals or any information that may be of interest to me? I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. I have been getting many requests lately about "women's representations in TV, movies, etc..." this must be the next area of focus. There is a book by Ally Acker, Reel Women: Pioneers of the Cinema 1896 to the Present, which I suggest you take a look at. (You can get it from our bookstore. under "Women's History"). There is also an organization-- New York Women in Film & Television, which is mostly a network of women, but also provides some information on this topic. (6 East 39th Street, NY, NY 10016-0112; 212-679-0870; fax 212-679-0899.) There is also Movieline, which recently did a story on women in Hollywood--although this was mostly movie producers, it did hint at women on television, too. I hope these suggestions help -- good luck.
