Women's Studies in Communication Bulletin, v3 n1 Sum 1979
This journal issue concerns women's perspectives in several areas of communication. Cynthia J. Huyink, in "A Dramatistic Analysis of 'Sexual Politics' by Kate Millett," examines Millett's motivations and analyzes the rhetorical strategies she used to accomplish her attempt to explicate the system of patriarchy, to reveal its injustices to its victims, and to incite readers to overthrow the sexual power structure. In "Covering Women: Women's Publications and the Mass Media," Sheila J. Gibbons describes a study that examined the relationship between advocates of women's rights who edit periodicals for women and the mass media for whom the women's movement was a news event. Sonja K. Foss, in "Feminism Confronts Catholicism: A Study of the Use of Perspective by Incongruity," examines and evaluates the use of perspective by incongruity in two pieces of feminist rhetoric (one by Ti-Grace Atkinson and one by Mary Daly) against the policies of the Catholic church regarding women.
