    schema:reviewBody ""This book provides an overarching analysis of the interconnections between women, politics and media, using first-hand narratives from women politicians to inform the development of a critique which explores the ways in which women in/and politics are routinely and mostly stereotypically, positioned by news media. Comparing the testimonies of women politicians in the UK, Australia and South Africa, the book looks at similarities and differences in experience across these geographies, not simply in terms of women's representation, but also focusing on their relationships with news media. In particular, the strategies which women employ to gain some control over the ways in which they are presented and reported on by journalists are discussed, making explicit the tension between publicity and privacy but also making clear that women are not irrevocably positioned as "victim." The critique offered here also factors in the ways in which political parties themselves, their elites as well as their rank and file, are seriously implicated in supporting processes which attempt to undermine the potency and potential of women's political contribution through a variety of convert and overt mechanisms." "This is an important book as it integrates the debates about women, media and politics in ways which give equal voice to the embodied political woman and her views as well as discussing the representational image of "women politician" as the subject and object of research on mediated discourse."--Jacket." ;
