Women and Rhetoric
Question: What would be the purpose for a course on women and rhetoric?
Answer: “…to come to know women as rhetorical agents by analyzing the rhetorical strategies they used to make their voices heard.” P. 518.
Comment: Assumes that women as women use special rhetorical strategies in order to make themselves heard and remembered—since they are considered in many ways to be minorities. Intriguing idea. RayS.
