Feminist critical discourse, at the nexus of critical discourse studies andfeminist linguistics, deals with critique of unequal social arrangementssustained through language use, in view of goals of social transformationand emancipation. Contributors in this volume advance rich and nuancedanalyses of the complex workings of power and ideology in discourse insustaining an heirarchically gendered social order. Grounded in empiricalstudies drawn from a range of cultural, geographical and institutionalsettings, the discussion of discourse strategies and structures explored inFeminist Critical Discourse Analysis shows the complex and subtle ways inwhich taken-for-granted social assumptions of gender and hegemonic powerrelations are discursively (re)produced, negotiated and contested.
