The first collection to bring together well-known scholars writing from feminist perspectives within Critical Discourse Analysis. The theoretical structure of CDA is illustrated with empirical research in East and West Europe, New Zealand, Asia, South America and the USA, demonstrating the complex workings of power and ideology in discourse in sustaining particular gender(ed) orders. The studies deal with texts and talk in domains ranging from parliamentary settings, news and advertising media, the classroom, community literacy programmes and the workplace.
