Distinguished researchers from around the world examine the interplay between gender and metaphor in political language in Great Britain, the United States, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Ireland, and Singapore. They draw on a wide variety of corpus data to determine to what extent metaphors used by women in political power differ with, or remain the same as that of men. They also examine what effect metaphor use has on women's power in the political arena. This wide-ranging collection of language-based studies will interest students and researchers in discourse analysis, political communication, gender studies, journalism, and media studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The importance of this book can be seen in the way that it brings together a focus on language (and conceptual metaphors in particular) and politics and applies feminist research questions and methodologies in thinking through this relationship. Language is a tool involved in knowledge production and thus political action, thus it should be analyzed cautiously which is precisely what the contributors of this book manage to do.' - International Feminist Journal of Politics

'As a whole, this volume is a welcome contribution to the study of gender and metaphor use, and more generally, to the study of metaphor in discourse. This volume will interest students and researchers with academic backgrounds as diverse as in discourse analysis, gender studies, conceptual metaphor, political communication and media studies.' - Discourse & Communication
