At one point during this discussion she talks about self-reliance, stating, “…because the position I early was enabled to take was one of self-reliance. And were all women as sure of their wants as I was, the result would be the same. The difficulty is to get them to the point where they shall naturally develop self-respect…” (754). She talks about how hard it was to develop this kind of independent mind set. For women who did not grow up with Fuller’s advantages, it was a very daunting task.
Right from the get-go, it is clear Oprah hooks her audience through her profound reliability through her use of ethos. Oprah’s humble beginnings coupled with her undeniable success and platform further solidifies her credibility and sense of sincerity with that of the audience. Thus, through her well-found respect, Oprah is initially able to captivate the audience. In addition to this, Oprah further encapsulates the audience through her touching use of pathos through her use of anecdotes. The moving story of Recy Taylor, a woman raped and beaten, through the retelling of Oprah, only further hooks the audience, creates a sense of sincerity and intimacy, and ultimately strengthens Oprah’s persuasion of the audience.
She stays focused on her work, all while being grateful for what she had. Mayo Clinic website also says that positivity can help in many situations.

Abigail threatens the girls knowing that they will listen. As a result of, Abigail gains tremendous power and influence over the girls and their actions, this is seen in pages 114-123, where Abigail pretends to see Mary Warren’s spector and the other girls join along. Nonetheless, Elizabeth has a good reputation of a Godly and honest woman in the town of Salem. This is shown on page 81 where Elizabeth willingly goes with Cheever because she knows who she is and is faithful that her character, reputation, and that God will save her.

From lines 1-15 the speaker’s attitude never changes if anything her position gets stronger. This poem is more about her than her hips. The reader does not get a lot on her hips but as mentioned earlier her use of a synecdoche gives the reader a lot about her as a woman. That’s why by her description of her “hips” the reader is able to get a great picture of how strong and independent she is. Thus, Clifton does a great job illustrating how the speakers “hips” are powerful, liberated, and more than any man could
Guiding her spiritually, she helps Celie to redefine her womanhood and show her how women should “defend themselves with words; they discover their potential – sound themselves out through articulation” (Cheung, 1988: 162). In the course of time, one can notice Celie`s growth in self-awareness and self-realization. Her confidence helps her to rebel against the patriarchal system. Observing her development and growth into womanhood, Shug says to her “you making your living Celie ... Girl, you on your own way” (The Color Purple: 2004:
Our protagonist improves her characteristics in every single chapter. Most importantly, she wins love from readers. According to the comment from Wendy (Dec.27th, 2007), a writer, Mary is “an unlikely character to evoke sympathy at first, but one who the reader grows to love.”(Wendy (Dec.27th, 2007), The Outlander – Book Review, paragraph 2). In other words, while other narrators are trying to let audience feel pity and sympathy to protagonists, Gil Adamson is trying to make Mary as strong as she can to earn popularity with her
Nurse Ratched is shown as a character of strength by the way the writer has created her character. Nurse Ratched is also seen as a strong figure by the way the other characters talk about her, for example when Chief says “To beat her you don 't have to whip her two out of three or three out of five, but every time you meet. As soon as you let down your guard, as soon as you lose once, she 's won for good.” The writer has used this line to show us how both Chief and the other patient give her the strong and authoritative
In turn, Janie’s story inspires other women, notably Phoeby Watson, who acts as a mirror for the reader. She is the vehicle through which Janie’s story is told, and the friendship between the two women rises above the petty talk of the town, the porch, and the community, in a true instance of “sisterhood”. Phoeby acts as Janie’s defendant, arguably more so than any of the men combined. She notes her friend’s agency and self-authority, “Still and all, she’s her own woman. She oughta know by now whut she wants tuh do” (11), and by the end of the novel, one woman’s personal narrative manages to uplift another: “Ah done growed ten feet higher from jus’ listenin’ tuh you, Janie.
The poem Beneath the Shadow of the Freeway written by Lorna Dee Cervantes, and the movie Hidden Figures originally a book written by Margot Lee Shetterly both convey the theme of empowerment to hard-working, strong women who can be just as smart and diligent as a man without the actual help of one. Both Dee Cervantes’ poem and Shetterly’s movie/book voice the importance of being strong willed as a women and making a life for yourself regardless your situation. Two concepts I found in these pieces of literature that I would like to obtain personally is the topic: focus on what you can control, not what you can’t, and cultivate a strong support group to achieve your success. Focus on what you can control, not what you can’t. In the movie Hidden
I believe the essay was a successful piece as a whole, and Goldsworthy does well by researching the topic rather in depth to a large extent, as well as putting together rather interesting and conclusive points to emphasise what she has accentuated throughout the essay. Goldsworthy also brings across a large variety of examples in correlation to sexism and misogyny, where in some cases I feel she runs off track in certain places, but this can also be used to give the topic a much broader spectrum. Finally, I think it was an admirable collection of the feminist discussion and social outlook surrounding women within
She uses very high level of words to help set the tone of a stern, concerned mother. Seeing that this letter was written back in the 1780, it is expected for the language to be different than what we normally hear today. However, Ms. Adams specifically uses a higher level of diction. She is a very well respected lady and is very wise and knowledgeable so her language can reflect her knowledge. Her use of the word “whilst,” in the second paragraph does a good
