Womenrsquo;s contribution to rhetoric throughout Western history, like so many other aspects of womenrsquo;s experience, has yet to be fully explored.nbsp; In pathbreaking discussions ranging from ancient Greece, though the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, to modern times, sixteen closely coordinated essays examine how women have used language to reflect their vision of themselves and their age; how they have used traditional rhetoric and applied it to womenrsquo;s discourse; and how women have contributed to rhetorical theory.nbsp; Language specialists, feminists, and all those interested in rhetoric, composition, and communication, will benefit from the fresh and stimulating cross-disciplinary insights they offer.
