Abstract

This study uses Critical Discourse Analysis and Corpus Linguistics to analyse how South African media, including online comment sections, represent womanhood and motherhood, with reference to two prominent South African public figures, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and the late Albertina Sisulu, both often referred to as “the mother of the nation”. In addition, I show how readers participate in public debate, in this case reiterating dominant views of women and positioning traditional nurturing and self-sacrificing attributes as desirable.
