Stealing the Show is a wonderful sort of historical anthology of TV shows where women figured prominently and how they influenced womens' portrayal in the system and is a welcome and must needed addition to the realm of Womens' Studies. We have come to take for granted that women can and should be seen doing what we Are really doing, not just what men would like to see us as doing (obeying an old fashioned gender stereotype). Even if you are not a TV or Prime time TV enthusiast, you need not fear, you will be able to follow along the narrative, and might even feel inspired to let yourself watch some of the shows mentioned whether you missed the Mary Tyler Moore show, or don't remember what was so maverick about Roseanne (Barr), or you were too busy to connect to Gilmore Girls here is your chance to freshen up your fandom. No research necessary; Joy Press has done all the work for you!
