"I really think students are impressed with the scope of the book, with the many new ideas and ways of thinking that are evident. This class is fun to teach because so often students tell me that it really changed the way they think about the world and their own understanding of it. This book plays a big part in that." (Robert Rabe)
"Excellent, diverse articles that showcase intersecting identities as well as diversity in media. Truly excellent choice of top scholars in the field as well as lesser known people I want to pursue more. I always enjoy reading these pieces and find them just the right length for students as well.Great representation of feminist, critical race, and critical theory scholars rather than merely social science scholars (as most other texts have)." (Breanne Fahs)
"I find this a very strong reader for undergraduate students who are new to media studies and visual stereotyping and representations. There is a wealth of engaging and relevant scholarly research that directly relates to the experiences of students with mass media cultural products." (Dr. Jennifer Brayton)
