Long Description
What is the nature of the relationship between; early cultural citizenship and consumerism; ideology and economics; militant politics and constitutional reforms; class and gender? Gender, Citizenship and Newspapers offers the reader an opportunity to look at the full range of ways in which gender is articulated and constructed in and through the press, both textually and professionally, in different national contexts. The gendered nature of the relationship between the press and the emergence of cultural citizenship from the 1860s to the 1930s is explored through empirical data and insightful comparisons between India, Britain and France in this integrated approach to women's representation in newspapers, their role as news sources and their professional activity. This original, international research provides a helpful contribution to both media history, gender research, sociology and media studies.
