Dr. Lisa Shaver (English, Baylor) will present “Thou Shalt Not: Forging a Women’s Rhetoric.” This talk examines the rhetorical tactics used by the antebellum American Female Reform Society. Established in 1834 in New York to combat prostitution and other licentious behavior, the American Female Reform Society was the first national reform movement organized, led, and comprised solely by women.
