Abstract:This dissertation examines how definitions of feminism were created and interpreted by the American media, and how this affected the development of the women's liberation movement. It specifically analyzes women's liberation rhetoric as it appeared in liberationist publications and the subsequent interpretation of that rhetoric by the popular print media. It addresses liberationist ideas in the United States during the late 1960s and early 1970s and shows how the print media attempted (both consciously and unconsciously) to control and deradicalize the messages of the women's movement through their interpretation of feminist ideas.
