Gendered Media addresses the broad topic of gender and media, where "gender" is not simply a shorthand for "woman" but also embraces masculinity/ies and queer, lesbian and gay identities. Karen Ross provides the necessary historical context against which to read recent sex-and-gender-based media phenomena such as Big Brother, Terminator, girls' use of cell phones, women news editors, the Wonderbra generation, the Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin phenomena, and more.

This book is an overview of the various aspects of gender and media in one volume. It provides introductory overviews to the various themes surrounding women, men, sexuality, and the ways in which these attributes are cross-cut by other demographics such as age, ethnicity, and disability. In this way, the book genuinely tries to provide a broad introduction, in one accessible volume, to the ways in which gender, in all its facets, engages with media.
