"This unique view of the role of mass media from the 19th through the 21st centuries will be of interest to libraries supporting media, communications, advertising, marketing, and public relations programs."
"...A feminist/critical perspective permeates this work and is reflected in the entries on noted feminist theorists/activists and various concepts, theories, and media critique perspectives....The entries themselves are accessible and well-written, with further readings suggested for each topic and cross-referencing to other relevant entries....Generally, the work is comprehensive and thorough....I would recommend this encyclopedia for addition to reference collections serving communications, women's/gender/sexuality studies, and sociology disciplines, as it offers an accessible introduction to gender in media studies."
