Arab Women and the Media

Samira Aghacy

Abstract


Despite changes emerging in contemporary society regarding women's role and contributions, the images of women represented in the media have not reflected these changes sufficiently enough. Women have generally been presented within the restrictive mold of domesticity and subservience reinforcing traditional roles and
behaviors where a woman is defined in relation to men who see her within the framework of marital, maternal and sexual roles.
