Keywords:Duterte, PRRD, Critical Discourse Analysis, CDA, Feminism, misogynistic tendencies,, charismatic democracy
This research explored how language use is able to provide meaning to a political discourse. Through the lens of Feminism and Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), this study identified the presence of misogynistic tendencies in the statements of Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte (PRRD) taken from news articles and his national speeches. Analyses were also done to deduce how language use is able to define a person. Analyses revealed the presence of misogynistic tendencies in PRRD’s statements toward women in general and specific women. Further, this study has found out that PRRD is beyond the notion that language has the power to construct reality or define a person. It is ` his charisma and the role of social media that can explain the PRRD phenomenon.
