Title: The house that Jill built : a review of feminist approaches to teaching argument in the composition classroom
Author: Ludlow, Marcee Monroe
Abstract: Congruent with the second wave of feminism and continuing into the 1990s , a group of feminist compositionists felt that argument should not have a major , if any , place in the feminist classroom and began to redefine , revision , and reposition argument . With a rhetorician’s bias , this report looks at one articulation of why they turned away from argument—Sally Miller Gearhart’s claim that “any intent to persuade is an act of violence”— , what they turned to , some critique surrounding their approaches and theories , and how a broader understanding of rhetoric and the role of agonism in rhetoric and education can add depth to the feminist approach .
