Towards a Transactional View of Rhetorical and Feminist Theory: Rereading Helen Cixous's "The Laugh of the Medusa."
Biesecker, Barbara A.
Southern Communication Journal, v57 n2 p86-96 Win 1992
Argues that by rereading Helene Cixous's "The Laugh of Medusa" as a rhetoric--that is, an essay which posits what can and must be done by women if they are to intervene effectively in the public sphere through written or oral discourse--both rhetorical and feminist theory and criticism are enriched.
