Domestic, Virtuous Women: Examining Women's Place in a Public Environmental Debate along Louisiana's Cancer Corridor.
Petit, Angela
Technical Communication Quarterly, v10 n4 p365-86 Fall 2001
Analyzes the experiences of several women who were identified as the debate's domestic, virtuous women: nurturing caretakers who entered public space to speak out as conservators of home and family. Highlights the limitations of an identity that enables women to access political spheres traditionally closed to them but ultimately dismisses theses voices when decisions about the environment must be made.
