Women for president : media bias in eight campaigns by Erika Falk( Book )

19 editions published between 1900 and 2010 in English and held by 1,346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While women have been elected to the highest offices in countries such as England, Germany, and India, the idea that a woman could be president of the United States provokes ridicule. When Hillary Clinton announced her 2008 bid for president she was the Democratic front-runner--yet she received less coverage than Barack Obama, who trailed her in the polls. Such a disparity is indicative of the gender bias the media has demonstrated in covering women candidates since the first woman ran for America's highest office in 1872. Tracing the campaigns of eight women who ran for president through 2004--Victoria Woodhull, Belva Lockwood, Margaret Chase Smith, Shirley Chisholm, Patricia Schroeder, Lenora Fulani, Elizabeth Dole, and Carol Moseley Braun--author Falk finds little progress in the fair treatment of women candidates.--From publisher description

Miss representation : you can't be what you can't see( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, Miss Representation uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see. Directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film explores how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in influential positions in America and challenges the media's limiting and often disparaging portrayals of women, which make it difficult for the average girl to see herself as powerful. Stories from teenagers and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, activists, and academics like Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Lisa Ling, Rosario Dawson and Gloria Steinem build momentum as Miss Representation accumulates startling facts and statistics that will leave the audience shaken and armed with a new perspective."--Container
