"This study of American science, activism, philosophy, art, and writing engages readers with women whose significant contributions have been 'forgotten and excluded.' This text also reveals how a society forms a dominant narrative in which key participants may be cast as 'other' and their significant work reattributed or denied."—Katherine H. Adams, Loyola University New Orleans
"Trenchant and insightful, Remembering Women Differently productively situates itself where the past and the present meet. Each chapter deftly demonstrates how an act of historical recovery can energize provocative new questions for feminist scholars and teachers about the rhetorical processes of neglect and nostalgia, of censure and celebration, of forgetting and remembering. This collection builds a critical bridge between historical studies of women's rhetorical practices and the rhetorical study of memory and memorialization."—Jane Greer, University of Missouri, Kansas City
"Remembering Women Differently fulfills its mission and then some: readers not only learn about overlooked women rhetors but the processes that occluded them as well as theoretical and methodological strategies for reclamation. In uncovering and analyzing erasures, collaborations, and formations of public memory, this book serves as a guide for reconfiguring how we do rhetorical research."—Charlotte Hogg, Texas Christian University
"a collection that progresses scholarly understanding of public memory, particularly in terms of how we understand women's positions and functions in a patriarchal system a noteworthy contribution to feminist rhetorical scholarship."—Rhetoric Review
"By proffering an expanded view of rhetorical activity and by striving to understand the rhetorical work that goes into remembering, misremembering, and erasing women, this collection has much to offer feminist scholars [and] to those studying public memory."—Rhetorica: A Journal of the History of Rhetoric
"This collection raises questions about what counts as rhetoric and points to places where we might continue expanding the body of scholarship on women's public discourse. But it also presents a series of lively and engaging histories that are likely to be of interest to scholars across a range of fields."—Pietho: Journal of the Coalition of Feminist Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition
