Description: In part thanks to writers and activists like Laura Flanders of Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR), there are now more women working in U.S. news media than ever before. But have more women in the industry produced better coverage of women's rights and so-called "women's issues?" In her first book, Flanders, host of the nationally-syndicated radio program CounterSpin, says not. In this series of powerful essays and interviews, Laura Flanders redefines sexism in the news.

Review(s): "...Anyone who craves something different from the Authorized Version of life, politics and our history should have this book." - Alexander Cockburn

"...Funny, angry, fact-filled and brilliant. I wish I had written it myself!" - Katha Pollitt

"If only there were a hundred of her." - Susan Faludi
