She is effective here because she is using power and history in her writing to persuade her audience. She wants her audience to see how much this means to women in society and how it is a dream for women. She wants them to see it is bigger than many things and not something to ignore. She is effective also in the sense that she is referring to MLK’s speech and thus showing the importance of her words she is stating. She also uses power in her tone to almost attack the values of the members on the International Olympic Committee.
She would be able to portray information more clearly, in a persuasive way and in a way that everyone will understand.

This speech by Florence Kelley is filled with numerous rhetorical strategies. Giving her speech in Philadelphia, she touched the hearts of many. Appealing to the emotions of the other women in the audience, Kelley got her point across. She despised child labor as she felt it was dangerous and inappropriate. By using rhetorical strategies such as imagery, anaphora, and forced teaming, she engages the right audience (women attending the suffrage convention) whom were already seeking change.
The appeals she used really connected to the audience in one or many ways. Coming into a conclusion, Sojourner Truth used logical appeals to persuade us, ethical appeals to make the audience believe she can be trusted, and emotional appeals to make the audience feel or believe something. In her speech she talked about woman's rights and negro's right and how that needed to change because you are judging somebody based on their skin tone, gender, etc. And in a way she connected with everyone somehow. This speech was very important because Sojourner Truth was one of many who brought this issue to the public's eye and really tried to make a change for the
The movie, She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry, is a documentary about the history of the feminist movement throughout the end of the 1960s and 1970s. The film presents the standards of the time and how each group of feminists responded to the sexism they faced because of these standards. The film interviews the leading feminists of the time. It discusses the issues the women faced, like abortion rights, equal pay, and misogyny, when they were fighting for equality for women.

Clinton’s words speak for themselves as they paint a picture of pain and struggle that women are going through in order to be equal, because every one in their life have a mother, sister, girlfriend or a friend who is a female and to hear all the harms that women of all kinds go through it makes you want to help in any way that you can. Clinton uses all the emotion to motivate her audience to take the topic serious and not just look at it as if it is a thing that can fix its
From writing books to writing in newspapers. Paulina Wright Davis started the first journals made for women, Una (Una is the latin word unum, which means one). Maybe other women wrote some great books and changed people's lives. For example The Bonte Sisters written by Jane Austen. The Bonte Sisters was a great book that talked about how these three sisters had to work many jobs and suffer to get money to help their families, This book shows us the importance of women and how they always work hard and try to achieve all their goals although sometimes the community makes it impossible because they never provide things that women need , for example education or jobs they were always rarely found in a community that never understood the meaning of women.The famous read book was by a women Harriet Beecher Stowes Uncle Toms Cabin.
A life burdened by rude comments and one-dimensional views is no easy life for a person trying to break the stereotypical mold set by years of media promotion by people who do not know of the cultural. In Judith Cofer's essay "The Myth of the Latin Women" she sets for the reader a theme of a women who for her whole life had to deal with people constantly trying to put her in the same pigeonhole. In Cofer's essay she takes the reader through her own life as a Latina women with her individual moments facing the adversity of being who she is. Cofer's essay is about her life from growing up in school and being out casted as the hopeless Latina. Then to her life as a young adult being harassed by college student boys who find it amusing to try and imitate the Spanish characters they see on TV.
Then by appealing to pathos, she reminds the world of the horrendous events that occur every day as a result of the inability of girls to speak up for themselves. Finally, she ties in a sense of hope through a shift in tense, as to present that together, everyone can aid in the success of the program in the end. Overall, Michelle Obama’s speech unites the world in supporting the cause for not only a woman’s right to education but also the right to speak up against those who shame them for being a part of the female
In the 1970s, the world of American women was restricted in almost every way possible. Women were expected to play a strict role in the cruel society of America. Hidden beneath the hopes and dreams of equality women faced depression and self-depreciation. Marge Piercy was one of the few that spoke out about this quiet issue. Although women's rights movements were in full throttle women still faced the constant battle with society, the idea of perfection.
Anna Goldsworthy writes in the introduction to her Quarterly Essay, that it’s never been a better time to be a woman in this country ‘on the surface’. Despite the hegemony of females to crucial positions within government, large business and greater education, women are still held to incredible standards in what Goldsworthy marks as an ‘image-centric culture’. Before I read the essay, I thought it was going to be solely based around women in politics, but it wanders off into the general area of sexism and misogyny where she Goldsworthy starts writing about how the female is viewed in common society, and then further away into Gonzo porn, online culture, typically associated with teenage women and their image and how they are viewed online, and also how women may go out and correct their flaws by makeup and plastic surgery. Goldsworthy begins her essay here with Gillard 's speech, now referred to as simply ‘the misogyny speech’, it was a hit out of Abbott and his associated endorsement of ‘sexism and misogyny’. She identifies that Gillard’s speech was a detour from the safer and more common female politician’s tactic of ‘cop it and move on’.
Not only in the United States, but rather all over the world, women consistently get looked down upon for various reasons. It might be because of the fact that men believe women are only useful for cooking, cleaning, and taking care of the kids. However, women actually hold a very important role in society. Men often forget that it was a female who brought them into this world. Women also take part in many political affairs and they always try to make the world a better place.
The predominant ideas put forth in the piece from the Combahee River Collective were those that addressed the shortcomings of the feminist movement to include all women and to address the full range of issues that oppress individuals and groups of people in our patriarchal society. This greatly furthered my ongoing development and understanding of what intersectionality is, what its goals are, and how it can help everyone instead of the predominately white, cisgendered, heterosexual, upper middle class women that composed and continue to compose a large portion of the feminist movement. One of the biggest shortcomings that are addressed in this piece focused on the racism within the feminist movement and its limited or even minimal efforts
