Most of these women are undocumented and most of them don’t know their rights, which companies take advantage of

Carlson uses Monroe’s Motivated Sequence to present each argument in her presentation.

Deborah said, “Sexual harassment was common in the beginning and, depending on the boss at the time, was often overlooked.” The rest of the women programmers at GRU said they did not experience it.

Margaret Atwood wrote about a fear that lives with many, not having any freedom. Offred is one of the thousands of people who have had their freedom taken from them. Her life revolves around keeping others content and doing what she is told, but she begins to get bored and curious.
