Sisyphus Rolls On: Reframing Women's Ways of "Making It" in Rhetoric and Composition

Document Type


Publication Date



This is a multi-vocal, multi-institutional piece that examines ways women "make it" in rhetoric and composition.

It is in the spirit of being more inclusive that we present our ideas about women's ways of making it in rhetoric and composition. This inclusiveness includes a written transcript of our audio narratives. Humbly, we present our work in this piece—after four years of writing and revising in the work spaces we all know so well—and offer several glimpses of the work women do as writing teachers. We honor all of the women who teach writing—those who have made it, those who are making it, those who aspire to make it, and those who make do.
