The United States of America is known as one of the most 'progressed' countries in the world regarding the issue of gender equality. To earn this title, however, the women of America have struggled for their rights from decades ago.

Despite sharing a similar topic, the two texts each displays its topic in entirely different ways, including differences in structure, purpose, and stylistic devices. One of the largest differences between the two texts is that both are from different text types. Text 1 is an advertisement in form of a poster for a restaurant called the Hardee's.
