How does gendered power work? How does it circulate? How does it become embedded? And most importantly, how can we challenge it?

Savigny examines how the prevalence of sexism and misogyny across the media, entertainment and cultural industries keeps sexist values firmly within popular consciousness. She traces the development of key feminist thinking and explores what we can do next after the #MeToo era.

Heather Savigny highlights five key traits  violence, silencing, disciplining, meritocracy and masculinity  prevalent across the media, entertainment and cultural industries that keep sexist and patriarchal values at the core of our everyday social and cultural landscape. 

She explores the deeper roots and assumptions of cultural sexism and analyses its embeddedness throughout contemporary media, films, music, games and politics. Arguing that #metoo isn't enough, she shows what we can all do next to bring about lasting, structural change.
