Empowering Women: Global Voices of Rhetorical Influence explores the topic of women's empowerment, offers a theoretical foundation to understand empowerment, and addresses the value of applying a rhetorical analysis to understand women's rights. In each chapter, Julia A. Spiker explores the rhetoric surrounding women's empowerment by analyzing elite female political leaders from around the world, with each analysis incorporating a rhetorical empowerment framework to unveil key issues surrounding women's empowerment. Spiker then links the rhetorical findings from each case to highlight similarities and differences in the challenges to women's empowerment outlined by world leaders. The conclusion to Empowering Women synthesizes these findings to present an overarching, global picture of women's empowerment. Scholars of gender studies, women's studies, communication, rhetoric, international relations, and political science will find this volume especially useful.
