Sonja K. Foss and Cindy L. Griffin have proposed an alternative form of rhetoric called invitational rhetoric. Five core assumptions characterize invitational rhetoric, which is the counterpart to Sally Miller Gearhart's "womanization of rhetoric." Equality, value, and self-determination are three feminist principles in which the initial stages of invitational rhetoric evolve. This paper will explore the processes, conditions, and implications of invitational rhetoric.
