The Zoe Baird Spectacle: Silences, Sins, and Status.
Sullivan, Patricia A.; Turner, Lynn H.
Western Journal of Communication, v63 n4 p413-32 Fall 1999
Contributes to scholarship which advances the understanding of human communication. Explicates Tronto's (1993) theory of moral boundaries as a framework for analyzing the rhetoric of a patriarchal ideology that privileges men and marginalizes women. Examines the discourse surrounding the failed nomination of Zoe Baird for U.S. Attorney General, examining how the rhetoric of moral boundaries defines care-giving as peripheral to political decision-making.
