Using irony as a form of ideological disruption, this innovative approach allows scholars to challenge simplistic narratives of who harmed, and who was harmed throughout rhetorical history. Three case studies of women's political discourse between 1600 and 1900-examining the work of Anne Askew, Anne Hutchinson, and Helen M.
