Confronting the Gender Identity with Party Identity: The Challenge of Political Discourse for Woman
By, Miranda (Çili) Prifti
Communication is a process of relation. It is well known that to communicate does not mean only to give a message but also to enter in a relationship in which all perform their own roles and try to create their own image. In this relationship, public (political) communication plays a special role, which in Albania is generally rude and aggressive. Political situations referring to communication is almost all the time, in a kind of pressure, especially during the local elections and parliamentary ones too. Political sides in Albania use special language instruments adding patriarchal and aggressive elements during their debates and discussions. The identification with the party identity is seen as the only way, which can ensure a place and a chair for a woman in a politics driven by man. Taking this role for a woman means having a lot of courage.
