The Changing Tradition: Women in the History of Rhetoric
University of Calgary Press, 1999 - Social Science - 279 pages
Until very recently, the contribution of women to the history of rhetoric has gone unacknowledged. Current scholarship, however, reveals that traditional devinitions of the field have been too narrow, excluding the work of women rhetoricians. The Changing Tradition: Women in the History of Rhetoric demonstrates that women have indeed been involved in the field of rhetoric, almost since its inception, and have made a significant impact.
