Kenneth Burke, Feminism, and the Election Season

Burkeology is used to analyze feminist stereotypes of the upcoming election

On the Feb. 19th article post on the literary blog, "The Silver Tongue," scholar Maggie Goss pens a text entitled, "3 assumptions to avoid making about Women this Election Season." In the article she focuses on three assumptions most people make about women and their relationship to the general election, most notably Hilary Clinton.

She focuses on how rhetoric is used by a speaker to reinforce commonly shared values only for their own objective, and for further reading suggests A Rhetoric of Motives by Burke. I think this is a very eye opening read that challenges the stereotype of female voters, and it can be found #more-2396">here.
