The research on Media and Women has sought to explore how women in urban and peri‐urban areas in Bangladesh engage with television and attach meaning to images and representations. The research explored the politics of viewing rather than politics of representation; to take that which for long been objectified and turn it into subject. The report outlines the dominant narratives seen by women on television in Bangladesh and describes how women negotiate with other members to watch their preferred programmes on television. The processes of reception and interpretation of women in relation to media narratives has been explored to reveal how television is creating avenues for negotiation and participation, opening up new spaces for women.
