The question touches on the subject of women’s rights to vote. In asking this question, Kelley makes her audience consider whether child labor would still be acceptable if women had the right to vote. She is trying to show her audience that if women were allowed to vote, they would not want their children working ¨under twelve years of age,¨ and would try and ¨stop the work¨ of children all together . In asking this question, Kelley connects herself with her audience and makes them consider the effect on the lack of women’s rights, and how the lack of rights is hurting children. Using a rhetorical question helps Kelley briefly reveal the need for an increase in women’s rights, while helping her argument on child labor.
Child labor was a huge topic of discussion in the 1900s. Some opposed it while others felt it was completely just to keep the economy running. Florence Kelley, in 1905, delivered her speech, which explained that child labor is completely unjustified and wrong. In her speech, Kelley uses rhetorical strategies such as varied syntax, statistics and facts, as well as detail to provoke sympathy from her audience. She uses these strategies effectively to convey her message.
She asks a number of questions throughout the speech, specifically Kelley asks “If the mothers and teachers in Georgia could vote, would the Georgia Legislature have refused at every session for the last three years to stop the work in the mills of children under twelve years of age?”(lines 55-58) Kelley asks this question to assert the argument of women’s suffrage. Kelly argues that if women had the right to vote there would be better guidelines for child labor laws. Kelley also asks “ Would the New Jersey Legislature have passed that shameful repeal bill enabling girls of fourteen years to work all night, if the mothers in New Jersey were enfranchised?”(lines 59-62) Kelley takes this opportunity to emphasize the importance of women fighting for their rights to vote.
In her speech addressing the National American Woman Suffrage Association on the topic of child labor, Florence Kelley bases her argument, through the use of logos, cacophony, and rhetorical questions on the ethical merit against child labor. Establishing her main arguments, and introducing the topic at hand, Kelley provides statistical evidence by which she conveys the pandemic of child labor. By stating that, “We have, in this country, two million children who are earning their bread,” she establishes the idea that child labor is widespread throughout the union and further notes the idea by describing the alarming trend of low wage-earning children growing as a demographic. She also notes it is especially common for girls between the ages
Child Labor Analysis Child Labor was one of Florence Kelley’s main topics at a speech she gave in Philadelphia during a convention of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. Kelley talks about all the horrors children were going through and the injustices they were suffering. She talks of the conditions children working in, the hours they were going in, and all in all, how wrong child labor was. Her purpose for this was to gain support of people to petition for the end of child labor. Kelley’s appeals to Ethos, Pathos and Logos through the use of great rhetoric is what allows her to achieve her purpose.
In her speech, Florence Kelley uses different rhetorical strategies to convey her message about child labor to the audience. Kelley uses repetition, pathos, and logos. She wants to get her message across to the audience that child labor needs to be stopped. First, Kelley uses repetition to emphasize her message about child labor.
It is easy to disregard the lives of others, especially of those outside one’s own, but does the fact that, tonight, several thousand children will restlessly work while the adults sleep not raise concern? Florence Kelly was a United States social worker who advocated for child labor laws and the improved working conditions for women throughout the early 1900s. During a speech to the National American Woman Suffrage Association Kelly skillfully employed the rhetorical strategies of imagery, pathos, and anecdote in order to sufficiently inform her listeners of the horrendous working conditions that many children were forced to endure. Through careful word choice Kelly’s use of imagery manages to evoke a sense of pity among her listeners towards
Brown v. Board of Education was the start of contemplation of segregation in schools. Oliver Brown wanted his daughter to go to school by where they lived, but she was not allowed to because she was of African American docent. Each state during this time period stated that whites would be separate to African Americans . Brown argued that this broke the 14th amendment (Equal Rights), but was overruled in court when the jury decided as long as students learned the same thing and classroom settings were equal than no laws were broken. This court case in comparison to the Greensboro sit-in was not mainly on the concept of segregation in schools, but
Persepolis Reflective Statement In the graphic novel Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi incorporates the theme of rebellion throughout the novel.

According to “Life After Bully” by Hannah Rand Alex Libby collected money to make some t-shirts that said “I stand for the silent.” “Turning E-Waste Into E-Treasure” claims that Alex Lin collected E-Waste, refurbished it and sold it to other people. Teen activists need to be hard working and give hope to people affected by the bad things in life. The second reason that teen activists need to be hardworking is that they have to go all the way to the big men/women in the court to change laws about their cause.
Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Supreme Court declared state laws establishing separate public schools for African American and Caucasian students to be unconstitutional. In Topeka, Kansas there was a girl named Linda Brown. She was driven five and a half miles to school only for African Americans when she lived about four blocks away from a public school. The public school was not full and she met all of the requirements to attend – all but one that is Linda Brown was African American and African American weren’t allowed to go to Caucasian children’s schools. In 1954 thirteen parents filed a class action suit against the Board of Education of Topeka in hope for equal education opportunities for their children the decision overturned the Plessey v. Ferguson decision of 1896, which allowed state-sponsored segregation as it applied to public education.
In the New York Times article, "The Stealth Attack on Abortion Access," author Meaghan Winter works to inform her audience on abortion and on the fact that women with low income are having their freedom to choose what they want to do with their body stripped away by abortion foes and republicans. The same abortion foes and republicans who voted to stop organizations, like planned parenthood, from providing cancer screenings, ultrasounds, contraception, and other services to low income women.

By taking away a health care providers’ ability to fund cervices such as abortion, contraception, and cancer screenings, Women with low income
Bell. Carrie Buck, who was eight-teen, was institutionalized at the Virginia State Colony for Epileptics and Feeble minded. When she tried to challenge the law, an eight justice majority upheld the Virginia laws. Speaking for the majority decision, Justice Holmes suggested it would be better for the world to sacrifice the reproductive ability of people labeled “unfit from continuing their kind” than to waste time and resources later “dealing with” the offspring. Once the decision was made, a majority of the states that passed the sterilization laws were reflected those of Virginia.
The “Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition” case was argued on October 30, 2001 by the Attorney General Ashcroft. It was a case to decide if the Child Pornography Protection Act of 1996 (CPPA) was constitutional or not (Ashcroft v. The Free Speech Coalition). The CPPA prohibits “any visual depiction including any photograph, film, video, picture, or computer-generated image or picture” that “is, or appears to be, a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct,” and any sexually explicit image that is “advertised, promoted, presented, described, or distributed in such a manner that convey the impression” it depicts “a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct” (Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition). “It took place at the United States Supreme Court
