Margaret Sanger Margaret Sanger lived a remarkable life devoted to reform by her slogan “Let every child be a wanted child” (Kasun, 2001). Margaret Sanger’s motivations, life preparations, and accomplishments prove her worth as a figure in the Progressive Era. Motivation Margaret Sanger’s motivations for altruistic efforts make her an important contributor in history. For example, her strong belief that women need information on contraceptives — after being “exposed to the ignorance about birth control” — pushed Sanger to work with everything she could possibly give (Mitgang, 1992). She was focused on the difference that she could make and the lives she could change; the chance of victory kept the fire burning.
Margaret Sanger produced the first birth control pill, arguably the most salient innovation for women’s reproductive rights in the 20th century. At seventy, Sanger had spent decades fighting for women’s rights and had made several valuable contributions, but she was still frustrated with a lack of effective birth control in America. (Eig 30). In 1959, she employed the scientific knowledge of Gregory Pincus to produce the world’s first oral birth control drug. (The Pill”).
Before August 18th, 1920, only men could vote in the United States. One person that helped to right this wrong was Carrie Chapman Catt. In Carrie Chapman Catt’s address to Congress on women’s suffrage, she uses logos, pathos, and other rhetorical devices to convince Congress to give women more rights. One tool that helps make this speech as effective as it is is logos. She demonstrates logos when introducing the second reason as to why women’s suffrage is inevitable.
In 1905, a United States social reformer named Florence Kelley fought for child labor laws and improved working conditions for women. In July 1095, Kelley delivered a speech on child labor (and other topics) while in Philadelphia as a part of the National American Woman Suffrage Association convention. Within the speech, Kelley uses many notable rhetorical devices, which will be analyzed in this essay. Perhaps the most noticeable of Kelley’s rhetorical devices is the vast amount of facts and statistics contained within her speech. Whether discussing the rate at which the wage earning class increases to the current and past laws of states like Alabama and New Jersey, Kelley presents herself as knowledgeable and trustworthy.
Obviously, as history has now demonstrated, exactly the opposite is true. The female gender has been proven to be more capable than males in multiple ways. Statistics show that women have longer attention spans, a greater capacity for noting detail, larger memories, and are far better at multi-tasking. In addition, they are more empathetic and able to see other’s points of view. All of these factors would not only cause them to be equal to male voters, but arguably the favorable sex regarding this topic.
The Third Wave Feminism was the idea to let women embrace themselves regardless of their gender. The Third Wave Feminism define their movement as an effort to permit women to define for themselves what gender justice and feminism means. The Critical Race Theory was theoretical studied the impact of race and racism within society throughout the years. According to David Trowbridge “CRT studies the ways that racism and sexism helped to create and reinforce a power structure that historically privileged white males over other Americans. Both the Third Wave Feminism and Critical Race Theory could impact a current debate in the form that people would embrace who they are and see how far they have evolved as human beings, as well as how more receptive
“Art is everywhere, except it has to pass through a creative mind (The Art Story).” This quote belongs to one of the most famous female sculptors in America, Louise Nevelson. Louise Nevelson was born on September 23, 1899 in Kiev, Russia (The Art Story). According to The Art Story Contributors, she, along with her family, moved to Maine in 1905 and by 1908, she had known she wanted to be an artist. Nevelson worked with Hans Hofmann, Diego Rivera, George Grosz, and also met with Frida Kahlo, all of which are well-known for their artistic abilities. At the beginning of her career, she wasn’t well-known mostly due to not fitting in with the likes of museum curators.
Planned Parenthood Protects the People: Do the People Protect them? Planned Parenthood was founded in 1916, since then it has made tremendous efforts and contributions to help and even save the lives of millions of people around the world. Planned parenthood is now known as Americas most trusted health care provider.

As long as feminism considers women a well-defined category that's universally identifiable... it undermines its ability to represent women. Then reader approaches the theory of Sex versus Gender Feminism often splits the unity of women when it splits the idea of sex and gender. This distinction was first used to undermine the idea of "biology-as-destiny." But, if this distinction is pushed too far, then the idea of gender becomes disconnected from the body - and one never will understand the process of how sex and gender are socially assigned. Maybe sex is a gendered
The best practice in making decisions in this type of issues involves finding a balance between risks and benefits (Guidelines on Termination of Pregnancy, 2012). For example, finds out whether continuing or terminating a pregnancy cause greater physical or psychological harms and risks to the mother. On the other hand, Bonevski & Adams (2001) further added that abortion may expose the mother to grief and regret. As such, it is important to gain mother’s consent before making the decision. Apart from that, in resolving slightly similar case study of 18 years old student was referred in view of her request for termination of pregnancy.
Paragraph 1: Margaret Sanger was the nation’s most important birth control supporter in the early twelfth century. She also committed her life to legalizing birth control and making it available for women all over. Sanger vulgarized the term “birth control”, opened the first birth control clinic into the United States, and established organizations that evolved into Planned Parenthood. (Jody) Paragraph 2: In 1924, the title red-string used to open Band-Aid. Brand Adhesive Bandages wrappers makes its first appearance.
The argument of the essay is trying to persuade the audience to realize how inappropriate it is for a man, transgender or not, to define women. The style of argument is similar to that of a persuasive writing.The author tries to appeal to the more logical side of her audience by stating the facts regarding a woman’s physical anatomy that men will never be able to experience, let alone understand. However, the author relies more on pathos and ethos to persuade her audience rather than with facts. The author’s message primarily regards what women are thought of as being. Since the argument is primarily backed with pathos and ethos, her persuasion does not have a lasting effect on many people who are less easily persuaded simply by addressing their emotions.
Even though it was around the time of world war I she didn’t just stop at getting her degree, but continued to write to the government for funding and building well established nursing program for woman. With the collaboration of Birdie Dunn, they introduce the idea of State Nurses Association that lead to its opening in 1913. Because of her braveness and contribution to the community, she inspired so many people especially me to fight for what you believe in. At the time when founding the NCNA, it was difficult to have all race come together, so they had separate association going on at the time, the African American nurses who was led by Carrie Early and the other one who was led by Wyche’s. It was illegal for the both group to come together in public places as segregation was occurring.
This paragraph from the article interests me because it shows the power and influence of the west onto China, and how that affects the people into being consumed by the advertisements they see everyday. In my opinion, it is true that Western models are considered superior and better looking even in today 's society all around the world. For example, in the passage Johansson states: “In discussing ads with young women in Beijing and Guangzhou they sporadically referred to the Western models in the ads as 'hao piaoliang’ (real pretty) or 'zhen meilide’ (so beautiful), and explained that the large number of Caucasian models as a simple matter of them being beautiful” (Johansson 381). Through growing up and definitely being influenced by mass media, if I were to be asked to
“A well-known southern magazine DeBow’s Review extolled the numerous benefits of women’s education, ‘The effect has been to improve their minds and manners without robbing them of the extreme delicacy and refinement for which they have always been distinguished.’” (McMillen 94). The purpose of education for wealthy white women was to turn them into “ladies” that had a general education of the world. Southern academies made it a goal to prepare girls to accept a domestic and secondary life. “Education gave girls a mark of gentility and refinement; its intent was not to challenge the region’s dominant ideology and belief that a woman’s proper place was secondary to that of men” (McMillen 100). They needed an education so they could well represent their families and become excellent companions for their future husbands.
