strengthens his credibility and that of the non-violent direct action protesters. He does this by describing the qualities of the people involved in the non-violent movements, namely the ability not to retaliate against violence. Second, the ethos of the movement is shown through justifying their need to act. “Mindful of the difficulties involved, we decided to undertake a process of self-purification. We began a series of workshops on non-violence, and we repeatedly asked ourselves: “Are you able to accept blows without retaliating?” “Are you able to endure the ordeal of jail?” In this example, King establishes credibility for himself and the direct action plan as a whole by stating that he and his associates partook in a series of workshops, he shows that they are willing and able to carry out the plan without the use of violence.
The speech given by Clare Boothe Luce to the Women’s National Press Club was controversial and even condemning of her audience. However, Luce pulls it off by gently preparing the audience for the criticism: she employs the fact that they invited her there to speak, a strong consideration for their feelings, praises of their profession, and a clear plea for open mindedness. She does things to create a peaceful and relaxed tone despite her words. She opens the speech with a paradox about being happy and enlightened; first saying she is “flattered” and honored, then she flips her original statement saying she is “less happy than you may think” (lines 3-4). Luce uses these positive terms to open her speech in order to set a specific mood, a mood that makes her intentions clear that she is not out to verbally assault the audience, but she is in fact going to critique and criticize them.
From reading it the reader can say Lois Lowry believed that a society could function only if everybody has a role to play, every one had to cooperate even if it meant to get rid of people who were weaker, which violates multiple human rights. William Golding’s Lord of the flies was a little diffrent the reader could say that Golding believed that society could work as long as nobody strays from the common goal, but once someone strays the balance is comprised and they resort to violence, in this case
I know you must see it now”(102). This strong revelation perfectly labels Abigail as a vindictive and immoral woman, immediately highlighting Elizabeth’s fondness. Thus, Proctor’s regret is what assures the reader that Elizabeth is his true love. While Abigail’s entire life revolves around sin and treachery, Proctor praises the fact that his wife’s way of being is completely transparent. He says, “In her life, sir, she have never lied.
She would wave at these people like nothing was wrong; she was unfazed. I admire Rose Mary for not caring about what others think of her; it’s quite daring. When she tells Jeannette about the two sides of life, tragedy and comedy, I agree with her 100%. Looking at everything in a negative manner does nothing tip-top for anyone; negativity
There was no reason that the Seneca Falls event was unwomanly. This convention was empowering, and acted upon bravery, changing societal beliefs of women. The Worcester Telegram stated, “ a woman is nobody, a wife is everything” This perfectly showed how women were treated as items. For a man to say this was disgusting. Being a woman was something to be proud of, not ashamed.
Her generosity leaves him speechless ending the story with his soft words “Thank You Ma’am” (Hughes 4). If we are able to understand the advantages that compassion brings to us, we can be able to find peace and joy in our simple but caring acts of compassion on a day to day basis. When we are in situations where we are tempted to act in violence and hatred, we must look out the benefits of compassion which will enable us to limit the hate that we see in our world
Iago’s cruel claims about Othello’s “witchcraft” are invalidated by Desdemona’s testament; her word is trusted over his. During a time in which women were discouraged from advanced education and were reduced to exclusively acting as child-rearers, Desdemona’s status is the exception and not the rule. Clearly, she had earned the respect of the community much more than the average
I felt she understandably stumbled a bit but overall handled things with grace and ease. In the beginning of the movie, she says "Nobody care about you, but you." I loved that she carried that attitude with her but then with the help of her phenomenal teacher, Ms. Barnes, she proved to herself that the theory was wrong. Amber showed that through trials of poverty, leaving home, school, boys, drugs and other temptations, she prevailed and kicked back against stereotypes and statistics. This made for a very interesting person to study with a great outcome contributed with her developmental factors of her parent-child relationship, identity, sexuality, and
Emily Toth writes, "The Story of an Hour" is also a clever piece of social criticism, showing without preaching. Chopin 's Louise has been a good wife, but she sees that death has freed her from sacrificing herself to someone else 's will. Now she can make her own life. In "The Necklace" Guy de Maupassant clearly shows that social status and class plays a very important part in the irony of the story. In an article titled Masterplots II, by Ahlbrandt, Wm.

They had the right to do so because they themselves had felt the same way Mrs. Wright did, the men were being disrespectful, and the women were dismissed from the men’s sides to look upon things with no significance. The women are easy to sympathize with because they have felt the same way that Mrs. Wright did at the time of the murder. Mrs. Peters says she
