Overview

How do women talk about peace and violence? What moves "ordinary" women into extraordinary activism? This book profiles ten influential women activists, relating their experiences and rhetorically analyzing their public communication in and about their efforts for peace. Authors also employ feminist theory to gauge the effectiveness of each activist, from Americans Ida B. Wells and Jane Addams to those still speaking for peace, such as Liberia's Ruth Perry and Burma's Aung San Sui Kyi.

Author Biography: Colleen E. Kelley is assistant professor of speech communication at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College. Anna L. Eblen is professor and chair, Department of Communication, at Western Washington University.

Because of its strengths, the book would, I think, be a useful supplementary text in courses on women's rhetoric, peace studies, and social movements.
