What do Aspasia (the companion of Pericles), Sojourner Truth (the orator of the famous "Ain't I a Woman?" speech), and the 1990s Riot Grrrl movement have in common? They will all be featured in Katherine Rogers-Carpenter's "Feminist Rhetorics" (WRD 420/A&S 300), which will examine the speeches and texts of women whose voices have led to lasting social changes in their community and in a global context. The class, which will trace feminist rhetorics from Ancient Greece to contemporary feminist theory, is one of Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Media's groundbreaking course offerings for Spring 2012.
