Feminist scholarship about the media is often guided by three key themes, including: (1) stereotypes of women in advertising, film, television, and other media; (2) differences among media representations of women of color; and (3) the role of women in the interlocking axes of race, gender, class, and sexuality. The purpose of this chapter is to, first, offer a glimpse of media stereotypes of women of color. Second, it defines terms relevant to the study of feminist theory as they relate to the study of race. Finally, it explores the primary teachings of Black Feminists, which are central to the scholarship about race and gender.
