Eleanor Roosevelt fights for “equal pay for women in the industry / she fought against racial and religious prejudice / her example marked an important step in making the rights of blacks a matter of national priority.” (Jacobs 94). With this in mind, Eleanor wants everyone to be equal. She knows everyone had the power but she was strong enough and brave so she did it. UNICEF also stands for human rights therefore Roosevelt would be a great advocate for this position.
Today, millions of women can implement their rights to vote in all elections in the united states of America, but this (rights) did not come easily to those women who sacrifice their lives to make this happen. In the speech “Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage”, Catt delivered her message for women’s right from a firsthand account of what she had experienced as a woman living in the United States of America in the 19th century. She advocated for the rights of women to vote because she believes in equal rights and justice for all citizens. The speech was very successful because of the use of ethos, pathos, and logos.
By emulating the Declaration of Independence and refusing to alter the etymology of the concurrent desires held by both women’s rights activists and the founding fathers throughout our history, Stanton makes us aware of the painful omission women endured from the very dreams that had been procured by men before them.

Civil rights were a massive issue in the 1960s. Peaceful resistance impacted the movement in a great way. Peaceful leaders like Martin Luther King Jr., Cesar Chavez, and Mahatma Gandhi are historical figures that fought racial division and changed the nation. Race was not the only issue, the fight for gender equality has been going on since before the nineteenth century and is still going on today. Betty Friedan is an American feminist icon that challenged the societal stereotypes towards women.
Mahatma Gandhi Non Violent Protester Peaceful, non violent, and brave can describe Mahatma Gandhi. Many people know Gandhi as a protester against the English, but he was so much more. As a well known non violent protester, Mahatma Gandhi inspired African Americans that they should fight for equal rights.

He left behind a lasting legacy of helping people fight for their freedom and equality.
Engraved upon the pedestal of America’s prominent symbol of freedom and equality – The Statue of Liberty – are these lines from Emma Lazarus’ distinguished poem, “The New Colossus.” Lazarus’ words embody the sentiment of generosity and compassion that has made our Republic one of the most altruistic societies in the world. Our citizens fight for equality and tolerance regarding matters of race, sex, employment, marriage, education, religion, wages, and freedom for all. Our hearts bleed and our wallets open at the slightest provocation to help others all over the world to live a better life. In fact, in 2013 the United States led the world in humanitarian aid donations (GHA, 2014).
How does one limit their reasoning of how Oprah Winfrey has changed their lives. I would like to start with the fact of how she has shown me that women can be just as powerful as men. In this world today it can be hard to remember that, but Winfrey will never let you forget it. From starting her own charity to help girls get a better education in a place where they were told they couldn’t be taught and are treated like objects. She has continue to strive for a better place for every human, no matter race, gender, sexuality or past life.
Malala effectively persuades the audience to believe in her fight for women's education in the MIddle East with the utilization of rhetorical strategies such as pathos,ethos and repetition. Throughout
The Civil War was a great turning point for Americans and their ideas and thoughts of freedom. Slavery began to be questioned because of this change, as several writings express the belief of everyone having freedom and equality. For example, the “Gettysburg Address” by Abraham Lincoln strongly expresses that every man was created equal and everyone should put that into action. Another writing example is “Ain’t I a Woman” by Frances Dana Gage expresses that all people, men and women deserve to receive the same rights as everyone else and no one should be cast aside because of their race, or gender.
Even though the emergency responders for the world trade center on 9/11 were able to save a lot of lives they still had some flaws in their plan which if avoided could have reduced the number of responders life lost. The biggest flaw that caused a lot of deaths was the lack of inter-department communication and collaboration. The two largest emergency department’s that responded to the tragic event were the police department and the fire department and lack of team work led to certain causalities. For example, according to The New York Times, twenty-one minutes before the building fell, warnings were captured on police radio tapes which was then relayed to police officers and lead to escape of most of them.
Anthony knew that women should have been given this right long ago, which prompted her and the others to begin a woman suffrage movement. Anthony and her good friend Stanton founded the American Equal Rights Association in 1866. However, the movement split and rejoined in 1887, creating the National American Woman Suffrage Association. Anthony went to Congress and pleaded with them to change their mind on whether women were worthy enough to vote. Not only did she advocate for the right to vote, but the property rights of women as well.
Laura KNEW the Positive Behavioral Program would prevail. (“Wanna bet?) One of the challenging aspects to the Harvest Valley Program was constructing a Positive Reward System.

Flint Water Crisis: I am interested in this topic because it has been in the news a lot in the past few years and I am curious as to why it has taken so long to be fixed because it still is not safe to this day. People have not had access to safe drinking water since 2014, and people should have indefinite access to safe drinking water. I would like learn more about what has been done by the government to help and why it has taken so long. This water crisis mainly violates is Article 25, which gives all people the right to an adequate standard of living, so that they can live a healthy life.
