Media Space has become a rich intellectual resource in understanding spatial complexities. This innovative book extends the understanding of spatial perspective to non-material spaces. The relationship between geography and gender is explored from an Indian perspective with the help of Media Space. Media Space is a virtual and metamorphic space where people can express and communicate views, ideas, images, and texts. Media Space is indeed a place where the construction of gender stereotypes, using various media, influences viewers. This study offers a diagnostic look at visual media and their consideration of soap operas, in term of both State and market responsibility, since liberalization took place in India. The study broadens the research scope of the geographical perspective in both non-material and material space, including television and other modes of virtual space.There is Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki on Star Plus, in which Parvati balances both family and business, or Sarkaar on Zee TV in which Premvada has a political rivalry with her male counterpart, or Jassi, whose active participation is neglected.
