Abstract: The present study focuses on two major trends in gender political rhetoric – the specific features of the rhetoric on one hand and gender issues, use of feminism, antifeminism and criticism of the political discourse in gender perspective, on the other hand. The study examines methods used by researchers Sonja Foss, Diane Baystryom, Janice Edwards and others. Gender political rhetoric is seen within a broader research method which includes verbal, non-verbal rhetoric of the orator, his or her visual messages, media projection and the audience feedback on the direct (verbal or non-verbal rhetorical) and reflected (media) messages.
Keywords: gender rhetoric, gender parliamentary rhetoric, media, gender studies.
