Anthony’s speech made several logical, ethical and emotional appeals which is what made her empowering and memorable speech set the tone for the women’s rights movement for decades to come. By stating the preamble of the Federal Constitution she built her credibility because it is reputable and it is a document that we built our country on. She effectively relies on the founding fathers and other esteemed members of society to help support her claims. She was able to logically express and correlate that anyone who is born in the united states is a citizen and that every citizen has the right to vote. Instead of just saying that women should have rights they do not have and making an argument, she states that the United States Constitution already guarantees her and other women the right to vote.
The Love We Hide It is Carl Rogers, a psychologist, who came up with the theory that all people were born good, but they were spoiled by the bad people of the world. We all are born with simple traits like love and compassion, but it’s our bring-up that determines who we will become. In The Help, we see two maids and one white woman convey their love and compassion, not just to better their own lives but to improve the lives of others like their bosses and the children they take care of. Notably, one of our first maids Aibileen demonstrates her loving care and compassion she holds for others and not just those of her own skin color.
Anthony, a rising leader in the woman's suffrage movement, made outstanding contributions for women to gain the right to vote. Susan was a leading force in merging the Woman's Right Society and the Anti-Slavery Society into one organization named American Equal Rights Association.

Susan remained unmarried during her lifetime and devoted much of her time to the cause of woman’s rights.

Erik Larson’s Devil in the White City is a nonfiction novel compiling a variety of sources to tell the story of Chicago circa 1893. A symbol of American exceptionalism, Chicago’s Columbian Exposition shaped the city tremendously -- whilst harboring a far more nebulous and sinister truth. Larson uses this setting to make a statement about the White and Black City, an elucidation upon the nature of the Gilded Age. Changing ideals and an evolving society made urban America a crucible for both atrocity and ingenuity, madness and brilliance.

Throughout America's history, the design of our currency has been changed quite a few times for reasons such as, avoiding counterfeit threats or to instill and show our American pride. In 2020, the U.S. will be changing the face of the $10 bill to a woman's face. The year 2020 is significant because it is the 100th year anniversary of when women gained the right to vote.

Lucy Stone lived in a time when the only main figures in society were white, adult men.
