The use of sarcasm adds variety to Kelley’s speech, this in turn kept the audience interested in the viewpoint brought forth through her argument.

It is quite evident that tyrannical governments often deprive its citizens of their inviolable rights as humans. While some struggle to grasp the gravity of this suppression, Julia Alvarez’s In the Time of the Butterflies provides a way of better comprehending the corruption behind the denial of these entitlements such as freedom of expression, liberty, and no discrimination. In this story, Alvarez intertwines the real life tragedy of the Mirabal sisters with fictional writing to fully connect the reader to the evilness of dictatorships. Her use of characterization and admiring descriptions of the Mirabals lead to her readers being emotionally connected to each sister, prompting a better response to her message.

That brand new idea was partially her leading as the first women president, but also the encompassing idea that we need to break down social barriers in America. Her rhetoric focused around this idea throughout her entire campaign. A perfect example of this would be in Mrs. Clinton’s concession speech. In her speech Mrs. Clinton remarks, “It was about the country we love and building an America that is hopeful, inclusive, and big-hearted.

He discussed how fast food has taken over American culture and revolutionized many more aspects than just food.

By indicating the scale has an authority over the woman, we understand the eating disorder's impact is dominating and ruling. Similarly, the choice for this photo to be black and white adds another element to the intensity of the eating disorder for the woman.

The Image Culture by Christine Rosen is a very interesting article that engages the mind by making the readers think of their own everyday interactions with images. Rosen’s article defines the way that society has made images more important than the written word. Rosen also discusses that even though images of all kinds may be manipulated or falsified, but are still preferred to the written word. The concept that images have taken precedence in our society brings focus to how Rosen’s assertions within her article are enlightening, and thought provoking.
She says, “Discrimination on the basis of looks is deeply rooted and widely practiced, and there are obvious limits to how much legal and police strategies can affect it.” Some may say that hiring based on looks is just a business tactic, but actually judgement can push people over the edge to develop an eating disorder, undergo cosmetic surgery, and have dissatisfaction with their body image. If someone is discriminated, in view to the fact that they are ugly, they know that there is nothing that they could do about that. This shows the main idea of the author’s argument because she claims that appearance can become a legal issue. She seems to be biased towards women because she is apart of a movement called “WHAT WOMEN WANT”.
