Abstract

Political debates are speech events which foreground issues of power and the 'floor', and allow the opportunity of assessing the ways in which the gender of participants affects their construction as more or less powerful participants in debates. Debates in the British House of Commons are adversarial in style, making it appropriate to view the floor as 'the site of a contest where there is a winner and a loser'. Previous research into politicaldebates has found that male participants violate the formal rules in debates more than their female counterparts, in order to gain the door Although the canonical form and rules of debates exist to 'permit the equalization of turns', rule violations are common, and inequalities between participantsexist. In this article legal and illegal interventions are evaluated in five debates in order to establish the extent to which the gender of participants is related to the control that an individual has over the debate floor.
