The Dramatic Language of Sexual Politics

The Dramatic Language of Sexual Politics

(p.157) Chapter 5 The Dramatic Language of Sexual Politics
Restoration Theatre and Crisis


Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with sex and gender issues. It considers the dramatic language of sexual politics, focusing on the interface between party politics and questions of gender and sex. It aims to reinstate gender in the language of ‘high’ politics and to examine what the Tory and Whig languages of sexual politics really said, and the real contradictions behind them. It examines the rhetorical use of gender issues in party politics. It also shows that the dramatic language of politics invokes patriarchal family ideology.

Keywords:   party politics, sexual politics, gender issues, sex
