Catt uses the Declaration of independence, which turn out to be the basic rule of government (Catt, 1917). This is because it states that all men (women) are created equal and Catt used that along with the quote from Woodrow Wilson that states “we are fighting for the things which we have always carried nearest to our hearts: for democracy, for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government” (Catt, 1917). The logic in Wilson’s quote as it relates to women’s suffrage is if democracy is the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government than why do women not allow to vote because they too submit to authority as men do.

Ethos – Persona and Tone As Campbell, Huxman and Burkholder suggested “character of the rhetor may be the most potent source of influence, even more powerful than the arguments and evidence or the needs and motives of the audience” (2015: 250).
