Subversive Feminism: The Politics of Correctness in Mary Augusta Jordan's "Correct Writing and Speaking" (1904).
Kates, Susan
College Composition and Communication, v48 n4 p501-17 Dec 1997
Discusses Mary Augusta Jordan's "Correct Writing and Speaking," a rhetoric text authored for women who studied writing and speaking outside of the formal academy. Suggests that the text's attention to the history of the English language and the evolution of arbitrary standards imposed by cultural forces makes it subversively feminist. (RS)
