In the story of Ruby Bridges, Ruby possessed character traits to help her through this time. Her actions helped propel the Civil Rights Movement throughout the country. Others played a part in helping Ruby. I think all of them were interested in doing what was best for Ruby. All the protestors affected Ruby. Ruby had an effect on them in the end.
Eleanor Roosevelt spoke at the 1936 District of Columbia Library Association Dinner on April 1st, and she gave her speech, “What Libraries Mean to the Nation”. Roosevelt’s speech emphasized the need of public access to books and libraries across the nation. She used her position as the President’s wife, and her passion for education and books to appeal to the primary audience at the Library Association dinner. However, she addresses her secondary audience, rural and urban America, multiple times throughout the text. Roosevelt relied heavily on pathos, which was influenced by her use of syntax and diction, to persuade the audience that books and libraries are needed for the success of the nation. Roosevelt’s speech is rhetorically effective because of the use of fallacies geared to the primary audience, and the appeals used addressed poverty and the consequences that could occur without the presence of libraries.
Eleanor Roosevelt, with her informal speech, the Adoption of the Declaration of Human Rights (1948), explains her opinion on the importance of the declaration and how we need to treat freedom has a right not a privilege.

She formally addresses this speech to the United Nations, World War II victims, and all victims in the world.

Some may still argue that Nelson Mandela would be the best ambassador, because he is a leader and mentally strong. However, Eleanor Roosevelt is twice the leader than Mandela was, because she is also experienced, determined, and passionate on top of that. Mandela did need to be mentally strong to reach his goals, since he was an oppressed minority- but as a woman in politics, Eleanor was all that, too. Mandela’s mental strength only pushed him along, but Eleanor’s helped her and all those around her. Both influenced their countries for years to come, but Eleanor’s reach was far wider. This would transition right to UNICEF, as the organization wants an ambassador that influence the whole world, not just one country. Eleanor would be far more accustomed to this goal than Mandela. After all, Eleanor believed that everyone should be helped and respected, which is shown by her efforts in the war. She would bring this way of thinking to UNICEF, which would become much more efficient. With this, UNICEF will have the potential to turn many more children’s lives upside down, and perhaps even create psychological changes in the public eye. Eleanor’s experience would keep UNICEF in a great condition, her determination would further the reach of the organization, and her passion would double the quality of UNICEF’s
In the twelve years Eleanor Roosevelt spent as First Lady of the United States, she witnessed many hardships on the American people. The Great Depression, a time when American banks went bankrupt and American people lost everything, had already began when they took office. As this takes place, she cultivates a sympathetic ear to minorities and poverty stricken citizens. Then as World War II began she would see a time of cruelty of minorities in Poland. Eleanor Roosevelt was not a lady who sat back and watched when action could be taken to right a wrong (Freedman
“Behind every great man there’s a great women.” This quote by Meryll Frost was first used in 1946 during his acceptance speech for the most courageous athlete of 1945. He gave credit to his wife and noted that he would not have received the award without her help. To this quote could have also been used to describe Abigail Adams, wife of John Adams. She was a courageous woman who stood out to against in justice. Throughout her entire life she stood greatly with courage and was also known for her loyalty for her country and family.
Nelson Mandela is one of the influence people in the 20th century politics. He was the first black president of South Africa from 1994 to 1999 and elected by fully representative democratic election. He was also a politician, an activist, fighting against HIV/AIDS in Africa, promoting global peace and South African anti apartheid revolutionary. One thing that he did for the Africans and affects the world was about to end the apartheid, a system that try to separated the races of black skin over white skin people in South Africa. Because of him right now there is no differentiate between those people again.
Throughout America's history, the design of our currency has been changed quite a few times for reasons such as, avoiding counterfeit threats or to instill and show our American pride. In 2020, the U.S. will be changing the face of the $10 bill to a woman's face. The year 2020 is significant because it is the 100th year anniversary of when women gained the right to vote. You could say there are many women that deserve this honor, but I believe that Lucy Stone should be the one featured on the bill because of her many contributions to the evolution of American democracy.
My match would be Mary Church Terrell due to our match of ideals. One reason is because Mary Church Terrell and I are both civil rights activists. Mary Church Terrell was a very intellectual woman, she was one of the first African-American woman to earn a college degree. Similar to me, Mary Church Terrell was also taught about the value and importance of education at a young
To me, Irena Sendler is the perfect role model. For starters, Sendler always did what she knew was right. She knew that race and religion had nothing to do with the treatment a person deserved. “If someone is drowning, you have to give them your hand. When the war started, all of Poland was drowning in a sea of blood, and those who were drowning the most were the Jews. And among the Jews, the worst off were the children. So I had to give them my hand,” Irena Sendler is quoted saying on page 10. To add, during the war, even if people disagreed with the treatment of Jews during the war, they kept their heads low and their mouths shut when it came to the topic for fear of scrutiny or punishment. Sendler, however, took action. She put her life on the line every single time she saved a child or forged documents for a Jewish family, yet she continued to do so at least 2,500 times. Irena Sendler was also able to endure many events while helping to rescue Jewish children. Sendler endured torture and intense interrogations from the Germans, yet she refused to give up any information about the people she worked with or the children she smuggled, even though she was offered release. In fact, Sendler escaped just barely escaped her scheduled execution at the prison. A great number of people who worked with
When Eleanor Roosevelt was known as the First Lady it drastically changed her life as a woman. “She took a leading activist role; she addressed the needs of woman, children, laborers, and the minority groups” (Source 2, Para. 11). After her husband’s polio attack she started to help him with his political career as president. Eleanor showed the world that being a first lady doesn’t mean you have to be in the darkness, it means that you have to stand up for what you believe. In having an activist role in society and having the role as First Lady, she was the first person to
