Description:

Women's involvement in national politics is a relatively new phenomenon. This book is unique in the privileged and central position it gives to women parliamentarians' own testimonies and experiences in relation to their media relationships and strategies. The book explores the relationships which women politicians have with their local, regional, and national news media; examines the gap between what women politicians say they are doing when they implement a media strategy and what actually happens in terms of how they are portrayed and represented by journalists, and constructs an explanatory framework to interpret the changing relations between women politicians and the news media.
