This thesis provides an overview of feminist perspectives applied on argumentation and rhetoric. Using the theoretical framework developed by Catherine E. Hundelby, the thesis analyses rhetorical and argumentative models and settings, taking into consideration speech performance situated in specific society and culture. Such models may be understood as an exemplification of a future feminist model of argumentation. The key issue is a gendered model of rationalism which creates a number of opposing relations, such as male : female, logos : pathos, brain : body, conditioning the rules of argument evaluation. The style of argumentation of the marginalized cannot be acknowledged without the adjustment of existent models. The existing research of the relation between rhetoric and women rights movement needs to be revised. The problematization of the interdisciplinary use of the term feminine style will serve as one such revision. A feminist analysis of the rhetorical situation involves the reconstruction of the context of speech performance as well as recognition of power relations between different speakers. This serves as the means of adjustment of criteria of relevance, acceptability and sufficiency, rationalization of emotional arguments, and strengthening of the epistemological value of the personal experience of the marginalized. Considering the fact that their theoretical presuppositions show awareness of different social positions, Christopher Tindale’s rhetorical argumentation and Michael Gilbert’s coalescent argumentation may serve as the basis of a future feminist model of argumentation.
