Speaking from Silence: Methods of Silencing and of Resistance

Speaking from Silence: Methods of Silencing and of Resistance This and other articles in this issue consider some of the many ways men have muffled women's voices and writing, and some of the many ways women have struggled to tell stories, critique literacy programs, record our histories, publish our truths, create networks, and revise our languages. Some of the specific ways women have been silenced include: ridicule, enforcement of family hierarchies, male-controlled media, anti-woman educational policies, making women's bodies political battlegrounds, censorship, racism, homophobia, and terrorism. Some of the ways women have broken silence are through the analysis of silencing tactics, the re-evaluation of `trivial' discourse, creative code-switching, linguistic creativity, and the organization of women's presses. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Discourse & Society SAGE

Abstract

This and other articles in this issue consider some of the many ways men have muffled women's voices and writing, and some of the many ways women have struggled to tell stories, critique literacy programs, record our histories, publish our truths, create networks, and revise our languages. Some of the specific ways women have been silenced include: ridicule, enforcement of family hierarchies, male-controlled media, anti-woman educational policies, making women's bodies political battlegrounds, censorship, racism, homophobia, and terrorism. Some of the ways women have broken silence are through the analysis of silencing tactics, the re-evaluation of `trivial' discourse, creative code-switching, linguistic creativity, and the organization of women's presses.
