The programme examines such questions as how representations in the media reinforce or subvert social roles and ideologies; how the sexual division of labour impacts on working environments in the different media and influences content; the differing relations men and women have to the media; the gendered expectations producers have of their audiences; and the role of the different media in globalisation and social transformation, and the impact of these processes on relations between men and women.
