This quote is a neutral connotative word which means it could be positive or negative; it is neutral because it can’t be defined as negative or positive yet. And, lastly, the author tells the readers about what the immigrants think about moving to America. “All of us immigrants knew that moving to America would be fraught with challenges” (Dumas).

The word choice of the author helps the readers understand her emotions and ideas about her story.
I chose to do so in the form of an interview because depending on the questions asked by the interviewer, the character, Jean Louise Finch, can fully reveal her current state of mind. In order to effectively portray Jean Louise’s shock, I tried to ask questions that show her disgust towards the racists and hypocrites. This task also aimed to outline Jean Louise’s confusion about her relationships with people around her. I attempted this by emphasizing her respect for Atticus and the romantic relationship with Hank, which intends to give a stark contrast between her previous fond relationships with her loved ones and the uncertainty she now feels towards them. I also expressed her unwillingness to stay in Maycomb to further highlight her disappointment and anger towards her hometown.
Throughout the speech she show and talked about the wrong with the American press but she suddenly shift her tone in line 50 through 54 which created an irony. When she stated “I must begin by saying that if there is much that wrong with American press, there is also much that is right with it”. Her audience was not expecting that after taking so much negative and showing wrong the American press she would say that American press can also be good when. Even though she said so many things wrong the American press she also said that there is something good with
He talks with the women about America and its’ affairs. The most intriguing part of their exchange, however, is when he asks who the mother is. In the first story, if one of those men were to hear “both” as the Mayor in this story did, there would be an uproar. However, he just says, “Pas de problem,” (American Princess) which is defined as “no
Samantha used pathos in response to the first Harvard Debater who proceeded to talk about how civil disobedience isn 't moral just because it happens to be nonviolent. He continues to talk about how violence can be moral to a certain extent such as in protecting your country. Samantha believes otherwise, as she again uses Gandhi to support the logic behind her point of view. As she says, “Gandhi believes one must always act with love and respect for one’s opponents” (Washington) as Samantha continues with a joke saying, “even if they are Harvard debaters” (Washington). By using a joke Samantha gains the crowd 's attention and they start to like her a bit more, also using words like love and respects towards others over blood and violence.
She also makes a strong argument through the use of ethos, pathos, and logos. On how people should fight and retaliate for their voices to be heard and not let the government do whatever they want to do, without questioning it. In the beginning of the essay Williams’ tone is skeptical and unsure, but as the essay progresses she seems to get more passionate and furious. Williams tone completely changes when her father reveals important information about what she thought was just a dream. “It was at this moment I realized the deceit I had been living under.
In Jacoba Urist’s “The Art and Science of Apologizing” which was published in The Atlantic in 2016, he talks about what is the best way to make an apology perfect. There are many factors that people don’t think about when they are about to apology, which includes: the moment in which they are going to apologize, repetition, and making sure the person you are apologizing to actually accepts the apology. After reading Urist’s essay and then going to read Harvey Weinstein’s apology that he wrote after being accused of sexual harassment against multiple women, which was published in The New York Times, one could see the significant differences that Weinstein’s apology should be like as compared to how Urist says one should be. Weinstein’s apology has more weaknesses than it does strengths and the many problems, which includes apologizing too early, not acknowledging the women that were assaulted and not showing responsibility and remorse are all wrong according to Urist’s paper on how an apology should sound. Al of these issues causes Weinstein’s apology to be a sad attempt of an apology that will not be accepted by society.
With the use of the repetitive phrase “ain’t I a woman” growing more urgent as she systematically breaks down the argument against woman’s rights, along with the way she draws on the emotional and Biblical aspects of the audience, Truth manages to create a clear and persuasive argument. As she challenges the double standard and tears holes in the logic of the male supremacist argument, Truth creates an unforgettable speech that changes the course of the women’s rights meeting on that day in Akron,
In the following panel, the girl’s expressions range from neutral to dislike or discomfort, which shows the general thoughts from people on how they think of the veil. Marjane cropped herself out of the class photo to show that she doesn’t want to be a part of the regime nor accept the principles of it. It would be hard for the reader to notice that Marjane isn’t in the class photo if the reader wasn’t informed and this is due to the lack of visual distinction between them, which emphasizes the oppression of women. The fashion statement in Iran creates a confusion for Marjane, who lives in a modern family but is restricted by the rules introduced by the government. She has the choice of wearing anything she wants in her home, but when she’s at school she is once again restricted by the veil and her religion.
This made her realize that the world that she thought to be free really wasn’t due to religion and social stigmas. While there are some views that Satrapi might agree with, because of this page showing her being so “Avant-garde”, it foreshadows her criticizing not only Middle Eastern social stigmas but also those all around the world concerning women. Consequently causing one to speculate that the questioning of the pages is a way to understand Persepolis as a whole. From the first page of Persepolis, we start to see how Satrapi’s mind works. How she invites one into her mind as to what she thinks about the world around her.
One of the main things she incorporates throughout her speech is hyperbole. She uses this exaggeration in a way that makes sure every single person who leaves the convention after her speech will know exactly what her message was. The problem Stanton was discussing was very serious and many were brushing it off like it doesn 't matter. Woman suffrage was not being taken seriously by males. In her speech Stanton uses hyperbole to demand to be heard.
Daughters of an affluent slave owner in Charleston South Carolina, they began by speaking to female audiences. Soon after, they were giving speeches to men and women. These speeches created controversy everywhere the Grimke sisters went. In 1837 in Massachusetts, an association of the state’s most popular Congregational church issued a statement condemning any women “who so far forget themselves as to itinerate in the character of public lecturers and teachers.” Attacks made against them spurred the Grimke’s to make the equality of women a more important part of their message. They began to write and speak about women’s rights as well as abolitionism, a decision which would soon help to split the abolition movement.
As Susan Mathis said, “The patriotic appeal had two aspects… ‘do your part’... ‘a soldier may die if you don’t do your part’...” (Mathis). As a way to boost morale, guilt was another essential aspect into influencing Americans to want to win the war. The American government subtly blackmailed women into doing what was necessary for a victory without appearing
