dc.descriptionA sample of 100 commercials aired on Malawian radio showed that many use messages which denigrate women, who are represented as voices of little authority, non-competitive, dependent, attention-seeking, and confined to the domestic sphere. Such commercials perpetuate women's subordination, and hinder their full participation in development. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
