Rogue feminism: Reframing digital feminist rhetorics in academia
Feminist rhetoric often looks back in history to find instances of women’s voices in writings, but for my thesis, I argue the importance of looking at modern forms of feminist rhetoric in academia. I am specifically looking at what I term as Rouge Feminist rhetoric, and how it situates itself in public feminist conversations online. My thesis brings forth questions about current understandings of feminist rhetoric online, and it calls for further study on how this new form is different or adding to the discussion of digital feminist rhetoric. I also suggest how future studies can be conducted by researchers looking at modern instances of feminist rhetoric online in order to answer the questions I pose.
