Examines how policy can be used to integrate public and community values into the media, to determine how organizations like MediaWatch can address gender and other human rights issues in this post-modern media arena of globalization, conglomeration and self-regulation, and to configure a new regulatory model of co-regulation that is open, transparent and accessible to the public. Calls for current regulation to transform into models of co-regulation with industry, government, and the public and civil society organizations all playing a role.

Feminist organizing for change: the contemporary women's movement in Canada
Documents and analyses the struggle of the contemporary Canadian women's movement to make change. Provides a detailed history of the 'second wave' (post 1960); it makes a primary distinction between grass-roots and institutionalized feminism, and by emphasizing the former, the authors reveal a part of feminist organizing that has most often been invisible.

The book includes an extensive bibliography and a selection of previously unpublished documents on the Canadian women's movement.
