Summary
Through the lens of feminist criminology, this volume examines the complex interrelationship of women, violence, and media presentations. The book is divided into three sections: the first section lays the groundwork for the volume by examining the print media's presentation of gendered violence; the second section explores aspects of femicide, including mass murder incidents, domestic violence, and wartime sexual violence in reality an on television; the third section focuses on efforts to replace masculine assumptions with constructive approaches to imagining women. -- from Back Cover
