The growing importance of visual culture is seen in many aspects of society - television, dance, film, fashion, painting, sculpture, installation and fine art - to name but a few. Feminist Visual Culture looks at the contribution of feminist theory and practice in these media and considers the place women have and the role that they play. Written by women working in the field of visual culture they draw on examples and situations from everyday life. A substantial introduction defines Visual Culture as well as providing an historic overview of the origins of current academic and feminist practice. The volume is divided into three sections: Fine Art, Design and Mass Media. Each section begins with a contextualising Introduction and then discusses the visual media specific to that area, incorporating wider issues such as class, culture and ethnicity. A range of methods and analyses are adopted including questionnaire sampling, in-depth case studies, historiographical overview of theoretical material as well as writing about current practices.Feminist Visual Culture is a topical and comprehensive overview of this field providing both introductory access to the key debates and a more specialist understanding of their relevance within a specific medium.
