about this item

This book examines the harm that ‘everyday’ discrimination can cause and proposes ways in which it can be redressed. Extreme forms of demeaning representation, such as violent ****** and incitement to hatred, have been significantly addressed in law. Everyday images and messages – in advertising, tabloids and on television – that ridicule, demean and denigrate people – are, however, widely perceived as ‘normal’, and their criticism is regularly trivialised. In response, this book draws on critical and feminist theory in order to forge a theoretical analysis of the harm created through everyday discrimination. Arguing that anti-discrimination law can and should be extended as a tool to offer protection against the harm inflicted, the book goes on to consider its limits – and its possibilities – for redressing this discriminatory practice.
