Silence: A Rhetorical Art for Resisting Discipline(s).
Glenn, Cheryl
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v22 n2 p261-91 Spr 2002
Argues that silence can be a specifically feminist rhetorical art, often one of resistance. Draws on two key rhetorical movements: the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings and the never-heard hearing of Lani Guinier. Explores the rhetorical dimensions of silence as a feminist position that can resist disciplinary pigeon-holing, embrace political resistance, and refuse the discipline (or "correct training") of sociopolitical culture and power.
