This collection of essays looks at the contibution of feminist theory in visual culture media and considers the place women have and the role they play. The volume is divided into three sections - fine art, design and mass media - setting each section in context and then discussing the visual media specific to that area, incorporating wider issues such as class, culture and ethnicity.
