Rosa Parks once said, “I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free.. So other people would be also free”. Rosa Parks was the Civil Rights Activist , who refused to surrender her bus seat to a white passenger, spurring the Montgomery boycott and other efforts to end segregation. The author of this speech, Oprah Winfrey, shows how thankful she is, and how Rosa Parks change the world through her eulogy. To remember her life to change our world, Oprah Winfrey delivers eulogy for Rosa Parks. She strongly supports her point by using a personal anecdote, allusion to what happened at the bus, and parallelism throughout her eulogy.
On December 9, 1948, as the United States was approaching a proposal towards the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which seemed unfair and uncompromised, first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt displayed a motivational and moving speech to allow the citizens of America to come together as one to make the best of the situation that was proposed in front of them.The analysis of the tingling speech on the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, will explore the deep rhetorical devices used to compel the audience and America, including the true purpose and background of this particular eye-opening speech.
Florence Kelley delivered a speech to the National American Woman Suffrage Association regarding the argument that child labor should be stopped. She presented very good arguments and persuaded many people to follow what she was arguing about. She used many different rhetorical strategies and she organized and analyzed her speech to perfect what she was going to say.
Sixty years after the United States was created many people started to rethink slavery and the lack of women’s rights. Sojourner Truth was a victim of these concurring issues. IN “Ain’t I A Woman?”, Sojourner Truth is claiming that women in her day and age are being treated as if they are less able than men to be who they want, and this robs Truth and all women of the opportunities they were promised which angers and oppresses her. Truth is using repetition, pathos, and ethos to prove her claim.
Eleanor Roosevelt’s speech was filled with the use of fallacies that use division and bandwagon techniques to persuade the
Florence Kelly delivered a speech before the convention of the National American Woman Suffrage Association in Philadelphia on July 22, 1905. She used rhetorical analysis such as pathos, anaphora, and logos to enlist working men to vote for the reform of child labor laws.
Anthony’s use of Rhetoric, as well as figurative language further, communicates her key point, which is that each person is born equal and should be treated equally. The logos appeal is the most prominent appeal portrayed in the first half of Anthony’s speech. The logos appeal is using logic and reasoning throughout a text, and in Anthony’s speech, the logos appeal was the most noteworthy. Anthony starts out her speech by talking about the preamble which begins by saying, “We the people…” however this section of the text was never taken seriously. For instance, a woman could be paid less than a man because they are thought to be insubstantial. However, this is incorrect because the preamble says, “We the people”, and society should be thought of as a whole and should not be divided based on gender. In Anthony’s speech she says, “It is we the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we the male citizens; but we, the whole people, we formed the Union.” Anthony demonstrates how everyone is a person and the constitution clearly states that everyone should be equally treated, and people should not be discriminated based on gender or race. She explains how the citizens of the United States are supposed to be treated as a whole and are not supposed to be separated based on unnecessary factors. She uses logic and reasoning to get to the audience and tell them that constitution and preamble were written to help the country not divide it based on gender and race. She
For a long time, women have been treated badly by the society that they live in. They have been killed because of dowry, they have been suffering from rape, and they haven’t been treated equal as men. Women were not allowed to take important decisions of their life, and they didn’t have a right to speak up for themselves. Therefore, Hillary Clinton was supporting women’s right in her speech, “Women’s right are Human rights” by talking about how women do not have equal rights as men, and how they have to go through tough situations. She also mentions that women’s rights should be equal to Human rights. This speech was given at the United Nations Fourth Conference of Women on September
In today’s world, it seems to be that women have the same rights as men, but it wasn't always this way. The speech “Women’s Rights to Suffrage” by Susan B Anthony is the most compelling of all. Susan B Anthony persuades the audience that all women should have the same rights as men. It’s shown through the speech that the federal constitution says “we the people”, the government has no right to take away rights from just one gender, and that women are considered people as well. The fact that the constitution says “we the people” is a primary point in this speech.

I believe that the author’s main purpose was to inform people of not only what President Franklin Delano Roosevelt did to calm the public who were having a financial panic, but also how he did this so effectively. Roosevelt handled the situation of the collapsing economy very calmly and confidently. With the tone of his voice, his word choice, and how he implemented his speech, he put confidence and faith back into the people. The author describes his voice as soothing, like a “favorite uncle telling a bedtime story”(Brands 89). This speech, however, would not have been as effective if he did not use the power of the radio. This was the first time that a president used a radio to communicate directly with the people of the United States and it was successful.
