The anthology is divided into four parts: film images, beauty images, music, and television. The articles share two intellectual traditions: the authors, all women of color, use an intersectionality perspective in their analysis of popular culture and the representation of women of color, and they identify popular culture as a site of conflict and contestation. Instructors will find this collection to be a convenient textbook for women's studies; media studies; race, class, and gender courses; ethnic studies; and more."--Publisher's website."@en
