METAPHORS IN THE DISCOURSE OF SYMBOLIC VIOLENCE IN THE PERSPECTIVE OF VIRGINIE DESPENTES
This research focuses on the metaphor used by Virginie Despentes in Césars' article: “Désormais on se lève et on se barre” in the Tribune section of the online newspaper Libération. This critical metaphor study is intended to find out how Despentes uses certain metaphorical concepts to describe the inequalities that appear during the César awards. Polanski who commit harassment and cannot be touched by the law is a form of symbolic violence. This research uses qualitative methods with a critical approach. The data were analysed through text analysis, discursive practice analysis, socio-cultural practice analysis, and ideological analysis. (By using Fairclough's model of critical discourse analysis which is integrated with critical metaphor analysis, it is concluded that the use of metaphors is related to men who are positioned at the top as people in power and women who are oppressed are described as voiceless servant bodies.
