Abstract

Rhetoric and domination generally are considered to be exclusionary phenomena. In the case of women and the suffrage movement in the USA for example, rhetoric is regarded as a neutral art that women used to overcome masculine domination. There is another less considered phenomenon however. Drawing upon phenomenological insights of M. Merleau-Ponty and M. M. Bakhtin's chronotope, this essay constructs a theoretical apparatus out of classical rhetoric and P. Bourdieu's writings, particularly Masculine Domination. It displays the relation between domination and rhetoric and explores the question of authority as it pertains to the female/feminine body in concrete terms.
