Following the events of uncertainty in Afghanistan brought about by political hiccups such as injustices among women, they were deprived of their ability to hold political positions or pursue academic positions (Cavin, 2006). The influence of the Taliban caused a change in the normality of things. Due to this, there arose brave activists such as Mavis Leno, who wanted to air out the crippled situation back home. She sought empowerment with foundations such as Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF) in Beverly Hills. She tried to reclaim the honor of women of Afghanistan by honoring their rights (Connah, 2021) and empowering them by holding their political seats together with their professional positions. Corporate media has been marked into the Hall of Fame of Propaganda. Brave feminist has recently outperformed all worldwide standards for deception, distortion, and manipulation.
To help deliver this, the use of rhetorical methodology was essential. Its use in this context gave room for positive criticism by the white towards diluting the plight of women in Afghanistan. Leno’s marriage to Joy, a TV personality, played a great impact in sensitizing the urge to help the women of Afghanistan. Mavis Leno appeared in celebrity shows to help end the silence on the issue affecting women (Mushtaq & Benraghda, 2018). She used the fame at her disposal to frame her plan through the influence of media and the international community. The propaganda of fame brought out different facets of Leno, such as bravery to carry on her husband’s agenda. Leno was now a public figure, therefore, she had to behave in certain mannerisms that resonated with the public, such as being brief while in public and using euphemism while referring to concepts of injustice in Afghanistan.
