The book Iv chosen for my Book Review is entitled, Motherhood and Feminism written by Amber Kinser published on January 1, 2010.

What is the impact of motherhood on feminism?
You can see Barbara Jordan get more passionate as the speech goes on. I noticed that she would become the most passionate when speaking on the actions of Nixon. She obviously cares about the constitution. In conclusion Barbara Jordan’s speech at the house judiciary committee at Nixon’s impeachment hearing was an inspirational speech. Barbara Jordan won a seat in the Texas Senate in 1966.

The speech given by Clare Boothe Luce to the Women’s National Press Club was controversial and even condemning of her audience. However, Luce pulls it off by gently preparing the audience for the criticism: she employs the fact that they invited her there to speak, a strong consideration for their feelings, praises of their profession, and a clear plea for open mindedness. She does things to create a peaceful and relaxed tone despite her words. She opens the speech with a paradox about being happy and enlightened; first saying she is “flattered” and honored, then she flips her original statement saying she is “less happy than you may think” (lines 3-4). Luce uses these positive terms to open her speech in order to set a specific mood, a mood that makes her intentions clear that she is not out to verbally assault the audience, but she is in fact going to critique and criticize them.
She is one of the most influential people ever because of not only her impeccable acting,but the way she treats people changed the way that many people looked at actors. Audrey was influenced by many things that caused her to be such an impactful person. Although she would reflect back on her life and childhood as being privileged, by the time she was six years old, her father left her family unexpectedly. Not only that, but she was affected a lot by World War Two. Her mother moved her along with her two brothers to Arnhem in hopes that the area would stay neutral.
As so eloquently said by Andrew Carnegie, “Teamwork is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.” This quote is asserting the fact that in order for a healthy marriage to be successful, one spouse cannot have dominance over the other. The Wife of Bath was a well travelled woman who had a past of having several different husbands. Therefore, she had a noticeably refined view of marriage. What women long for but rarely have in their marriages is reflected quite exceptionally in her tale. In the beginning of the tale, the Wife of Bath clearly portrays how men behaved towards women in her day and age.
Recent discoveries show, “Of 134 jihadist-inspired terrorists who have carried out or plotted attacks here since 9/11, 96 were U.S. citizens” (Jenkins). In the United States there has been a serious rise in domestic terrorism, however the government refuses to acknowledge it. Instead their focus has been abroad, rightly so in some cases, while more domestic attacks make headline news. The change in visa laws does nothing, because since 9/11 86% of the terror attacks have been plotted or carried out by American citizens. Therefore, the United States needs to step up its efforts to combat domestic terrorism because the jail time is too short for current terrorists, there are no true task forces for current attacks, and there has been an increase of these groups and attacks.
He proves himself a progressive thinking and innovative individual in the face of our nation’s serious atrocities against people of color. Evidence to these accusations against his character is scarce, save for his forward nature in letters to his supposed one night stand. There are many letters that show his indulgent and immoderately charming nature and one should observe his forward behavior in conjunction with his high regard for women and their education. He often made a case for women’s deserved right to education and even made comments in his provocative letter his young friend seeking a mistress. In one of his reasons for the selection of an old mistress is because they are wiser and, “their Conversation is more improving and more lastingly agreeable.” While this statement isn’t in any way justifying his grossly detailed
If the “slang” words are used by this important white figure, like a president or a motivational speaker then they are taken less seriously and often stereotyped as dumb or stupid. When a black figure code-switches this is a norm, so nobody pays attention to what everyone is expecting to happen. An example of this would be when Young expresses in his article about President Obamas wife, Michelle. He says that she used words like “ain’t” in her speech and nobody cared or thought lower of her for it. In the novel THUG, Starr’s boyfriend tries to talk like Starr and Seven, her brother, but gets [jokingly] made fun of by Starr.
