    Episode 7: New Book! Debating Women with author Dr. Carly Woods

    Episode 7: New Book! Debating Women with author Dr. Carly Woods

    At the National Communication Association convention in Salt Lake City, we had the chance to speak with Dr. Carly Woods about her new book Debating Women: Gender, Education, and Spaces for Argument, 1835-1945. It's a fascinating book that traces how women historically worked to gain access or create their own ways to practice the art of rhetoric and debating. Hear about how she researched the book, some of the amazing people who feature in the book, and what similarities debating women face today with their counterparts from the past.
