This paper reviews critical discourse analysis (CDA) research in the fields of media, politics, racism and sexism discourse with voices raised against socio-political inequality, which is also one of the fundamental goals CDA has been attempting to attain. Literature review shows that CDA research describing and criticizing socio-political inequality through language use is enormous and so is its impact on individuals and groups as members of our conflicting society. CD analysts, using emancipatory discourse, can contest the maintenance and reproduction of domination and subordination patterns in society through language practices by raising people’s awareness of the asymmetrical relation of power.
