With an abundant, and quite merit, selection to choose from, ranking a list of top three was genuinely troublesome and certainly crucial, but nevertheless my selection prevailed to be accurate as I make my decision final. As it stands, my selection persists to be Pacific Standard article “Women Aren 't Welcome Here”, New York Times Magazine writing “The Ballad of Geeshie and Elvie”, and Chicago article “ The Truth About Chicago 's Crime Rates”. With that, a praising and analysis essay is expected not to be entirely burdensome with the complexity of each article as far as techniques to encourage and promote the article, providing with many topics to discuss and analyze. Concerning each article, I will fully dissect the topics conversed …show more content…
With this current age in media describing a “war on women” it is no shock to see that a controversial piece has conquered its way through rival writing to gain the position it has today, and this may give other people their justification for selecting this article for their top three, but I don`t fall into this category. I didn 't selection such a piece due to agreements I made with the article, but quite the opposite. I refuse to accept that the actions faced by this one women, or any number of women, is justification to agree that the only war occurring is in conflict with women, but nevertheless this controversy is a great example of how the author, Amanda Hess, a journalist for Pacific Standard, can quickly gain the attention of the audience, of more than likely women from ages 18 to 35 years of age, to entice a reader to alter their mindset on social media in favor of the “war on women”. Certainly, one factor that advances this article is the style of storytelling used by the author to easily convey the message and organize the concepts and events for the reader. Ultimately, the author conveys this controversial message to rather convince or conflict the reader, creating an edge to the piece that cuts its way through to the top standings of journalism of 2015 and my personal rankings of top three, causing a respected appreciation, but not

“Working Women and the Triangle Fire” by Elizabeth Burt begins by providing detailed information about hard-working, exploited women in the labor force. The article describes previous attempts of women factory workers to organize to protest injustice, and also explains that “the press had sporadically covered these attempts” (Burt 190). Next, the author provides specific examples of the work of journalists who wrote about frustrated women workers, but states that these articles mainly appeared in the women’s sections of newspapers. Workers had the most success by participating in labor actions (Burt 190). The article describes that when the press covered most labor movements, focus was placed on negotiations, violence, or the character of the
Women are viewed as fragile and delicate, but strong enough to keep a house clean, kids in line and a happy husband. Women are expected to be stay at home moms and depend on their husbands for everything while having no opinions of their own. However, there are women who have overlooked those expectations and proved that women are capable of doing anything. Deborah Sampson and Elizabeth Van Lew are just two women who have helped break the norms of women’s roles in society. Sampson’s impressive braveness and loyalty to fight for her country against all odds have proved that women are capable to endure harsh horrors.
“Women are 51 percent of humankind. Empowering them will change everything” said Isabel Allende during her presentation, “Tales of Passion”, at a TEDTALK conference. Allende, an author, uses storytelling to depict stories of women across the world being abused and suppressed by men; in order, to educate her audience on how women are less empowered. As a speaker, she effectively grabbed the audience attention by asking one question: “What is truer than truth?”. In a split second before she reveals her answer: “Answer:
Women's Suffrage is and was a really big thing for women in the 1850’s and still is now but women have more rights now. Do you support Women’s Suffrage or are you against it? Women all over the world started protesting for equal rights for all genders; it took awhile but they did because now we can do many things we couldn’t in the 1850’s. All of the protesting started only with a few women and then turned into a worldwide protest for women. Women's Suffrage first started out as a peaceful protest that was very important to women, but some protests were violent because some people didn’t believe in women rights.
During this week, we have covered numerous topics, none more prominent than the oppression of women. Everyone had different opinions, allowing me to take into account different views on the issue. In one of the texts we examined, “Oppression”, Marilyn Frye, a philosopher, debates the subjugation of women. She states the cultural customs that causes oppression of women. I do agree with her view that women are oppressed, but I do not agree that it is just women.
History has shown that cruelty against women has been a long time fight that has grown over the years. The way men treat women has become a very pressing matter and is affecting women all around the world. Women have fought this fight for generations and generations to come will have the same fight until men change their ways. For example, women fought for their right to vote for years. Eventually women won the fight and life for women has become more equal.
Women in the Progressive Era The Progressive Era was a time of change across America, a time when the country chose to reform into an industrialized urban country. Prosperity was widespread across America, so people turned to social issues to try to expand. Minorities in particular became a focus of this time period, and everyone tried to find a way to integrate them into society.
The sub-section “Women of the Freeway Revolt” focuses on women who made political and media coverage for their participation in the “Freeway Revolt”. Unsurprisingly all of the women in this part of the chapter are white upper and middle-class women from influential families. All of them started out as housewives and had the time and resources to participate in the freeway revolt. These women were seen as “mothers [that] kept insisting and wouldn’t give up” they were an actual force to be reckoned with. In contrast, the next section “Feminism under the Freeway” the role of women of color is finally explained.
No woman is allowed to be angry. This is the message that is subliminally delivered by those who tend to accuse the anger of a woman as a played-out weapon. For far too long has the uproar of unjust accusations made by women been disregarded as an emotionally biased issue. This has caused a great many of women to restrain their tongues before speaking their true and pure opinion. They fear persecution and that their whole argument will not be taken heavily if the delivery is not well thought out and calmly delivered.
and lifted it high” (Alvarez 153). As a female immigrant, Carla experienced a high degree of discrimination resulting from the prevalence of the American fear of cultural diversity. As a response to this fear, Carla was sexually objectified. Logically, her standing as a female immigrant caused her to be subject to additional marginalization solely as a result of her
As can be seen throughout history, standards have been imposed to trap and crumble minority groups from uprising to the changes of modern-day perspectives of liberation and equal rights. Jackie Fleming, an accredited cartoon activist and author of “The trouble with women” advocates for issues against young women including sexual harassment, gender stereotypes, and gender-based violence. Through the representation of these issues in her cartoons, often in a stylistic approach, Fleming exposes an awareness of post-modern standards that have been transcended into today’s generation acting as a barrier to modern-day female empowerment. To begin, Fleming demonstrates her understanding that fundamentally, the absurdity of these standards relies
Because of war, these women had to give up their social identities as women in order to become soldiers. However, after the war is over, they return home and cannot idly stand by as they did before because they now have the minds of soldiers from war. Their lives are forever changed and once your identity undergoes a change, it is difficult to revert back. The woman’s tone and diction reveal a clear distinction between her past self and present self. As she describes her past she is “seized with terror” even though it is her own past that she recalls.
Susan S. Lanser’s “Feminist Criticism, ‘The Yellow Wallpaper,’ and the politics of color in America” examines the impacts “The Yellow Wallpaper” had on feminist writing styles and critiques. Lanser writes that the story helps to analyze the reading trough “the lens of a female consciousness” and apply the knowledge gained from a female perspective onto other literature (418). The transition that the narrator displays from being dependent on John to becoming independent reflects the feminist movement and challenges the “male dominance” that currently takes precedence in society (418). The “patriarchal prisonhouse” that is society controls the narrator and oppresses women not only in “The Yellow Wallpaper” but in real life as well (419). The
Throughout the Nazi's rule, the position of women has been one of constant change through time and there has been a debate about whether the position of women improved. When the Nazis came to power in 1933 there were many changes in society. Hitler's goal was to create a super race of people of pure German ‘Aryan’ blood and to expand the German Empire, to make it the most powerful empire during that period. Hitler in doing so many people were affected by these changes that had to be made. Some of these factors are through the political, social and economic factors that play a role in the position of women.
We all know that women didn 't have as many rights as men, and they still don 't. Women can now do more than they used to, but they still aren 't equal with men. They have had to fight for so many things like the right to vote and to be equal to men. The 19th amendment, the one that gave women the right to vote, brought us a big step closer. The Equal Rights Movement also gave us the chance to have as many rights as men. Women have always stayed home, cleaned the house, and didn 't even get an education.
