Necessitate Equality Using the two of Anita Hill’s books, “Reimagining Equality” And “Speaking Truth To Power” I’m highlighting Hill’s most important value: necessitating equality. Hill was a former lawyer and now a professor that went from a private citizen to an internationally respected gender equality activist for speaking up about Clarence Thomas. In the book “Reimagining Equality” Hill talks about the real “American home” and how the world isn’t legitimately equal (gender, race, sex, etc.) and talks a little about the Anita Hill v. Clarence Thomas incident, but not hastily and emphasizes the importance and difference, equality makes in the world and highlights all the lows it brings. The other book that was chosen “Speaking Truth To Power”,
. Frida was raised in a different culture, because of this, she has values to respect others, and treat others with compassion. Frida eventually changed her morals, then she realized in the United States, things were different, Frida became classically conditioned into believing that acting outrageously would be the only way others would actually hear what she needed to say. Frida, and her husband were involved in politics as well, they believed in letting that assertiveness be heard, and otherwise those whom perceived their morals as something they were not would judge them.. 9.John Watson believed that he could make any infant he chose and “train the child to become any type of specialist” as long as Watson controlled the environment.
Both articles use rhetorical appeals to improve their arguments. For Ethos, both showed credibility by sharing their story and establishing an audience for it. Spector uses Ethos by talking about his previous work experience and how he rose up to become a business owner. Kertson uses ethos by explaining his story about being a minimum wage employee for many jobs. He also uses it when he points out Nick Hanauer- a successful entrepreneur- to show that even he believes that raising the minimum wage will boost the economy.
By choosing to include such a strong sense of pathos, she was able to promote an effective argument that was appropriate for her intended audience; the National American Woman Suffrage Association. The use of pathos, as seen in lines 18-19, “Tonight while we sleep, several thousand little girls will be working in textile mills, all the night through” constructs a sense of guilt, she
This captivates the audience to continue reading because the pertinent information establishes the foundation for the following main points of the topic question. In addition to this, I established ethos because I seemed credible while talking about Roy's journey. By using relevant quotes from Roy, the police officer and my own personal thoughts, I incorporate the views of certain people that I encountered during my journey. These quotes are similar to the sources one would use when using a research paper. Using the “right sources” allows me to boost the establishment of ethos throughout the entire story.
By saying this, Eleanor presents the rhetorical device pathos, because she uses inspirational words to grab attention and connect with the listeners in a way that relates to them. She also uses vivid language to truly intrigue the audience to compromise and work together to provide peace for the country. Eleanor uses a strong form of ethos in the quote from paragraph 10 , “ This declaration is based upon the spiritual fact
This shows ethos because as the principal if he doesn’t tell the teachers to do something they will not change. The last way he used ethos was before the students took the exam, Joe told them how he felt about them taking the test making him and the students confident about passing the test. Without ethos Joe might not have gotten his messages across telling his staff and students what he thinks is best persuading them to do better.
Oprah Winfrey uses her Cecil B de Mille acceptance speech to cast light on societal issues of corruption, discrimination, objectification, and racism. Oprah’s speech reflects an age and dialogue of constant controversy and arguable division surrounding allegations of sexual assault, mistreatment, and the seemingly unthinkable idea of an underlying patriarchy within the film industry. Oprah explores and conveys these ideas through the use of various persuasive linguistic and oratorical techniques. This is seen through her use of ethos and pathos when creating an emphatic delivery and appealing to the emotions of the audience when utilising anecdotes. This is also further seen through her repetition of female pronouns when persuading the audience
According to Steinem, boys and girls need to be equally represented in media so they both understand the importance of not only helping others and benefiting society but also receiving help from those more skillful. This message embodies the goal of true feminism, to empower women and feminize men to advance
We are living in a world where gender equality is a recurring issue for women, whether it is in the workforce, the media, education or on the streets woman still live a society where they aren’t treated equally (Cosslett & Baxter, 2013). In a world where 95% of countries are led by a male head of state, shows that Esther story can be relevant today’s society. Esther
She encourages the members of her audience to be a mentor to someone who is different from them, and who does not have the same opportunities as them (Abdel-Magied, 9:56). Everyone has the tendency to gravitate towards those similar as themselves, she acknowledges (Abdel-Magied, 10:00). But by finding someone with a completely different background than you, you can create opportunities for them that were not there before. Many times we don’t even realize that others lack the opportunities that we have (Abdel-Magied, 10:35-10:45). By making the decision to look beyond your own bias and reach out to someone, you have the potential to create more opportunities for people, and in doing so you are helping the world by creating equal
The author used different elements of ethos, logos, pathos, and kairos to effectively communicate with the reader. Eve Tushnet the author of this essay does not have a whole lot of ethos. Eve is lacking credibility and character because she is not an established author. Eve is not a credible author because she is a freelance writer. Eve does not have good credibility because she blogs and contributes to an opinion magazine and website.
She uses ethos here because the speech is from a graduation and she’s an expert in graduating because she experienced it herself and she has an excellent life now. “Now all I have to do is take deep breaths, squint at the red banners and convince myself that I am at the world’s largest Gryffindor reunion” (Page 1, column 1, line 10-13) This is an allusion because it’s a reference to her well-known Harry Potter book series. This reference is very good, because many people know of her work and therefore they will relate to the content. “I have decided to talk to you about the benefits of failure.
Taylor Swift wasn’t always the ‘feminist’ that she claims to be, before her ‘empowering’ award speeches and squads, the young icon said in an interview that she does not want to be called a feminist. Marketplace feminism, based on Zeisler’s book, We Were Feminists Once, is a form of “branding feminism as an identity that anyone can and could consume.” The boom of feminism in pop culture led Taylor Swift and many artists went with the ‘trend’ that is feminism. Yet, majority fail to discuss sensitive issues that the media might think will not go well the audiences.
