Malala employs pathos so that the reader could feel where she is coming from. As a result, she wants the reader to know that education for girls is a very imperative thing. By using vigorous pathos, she gets the reader to fathom that a girl’s education is important and meaningful to them. In the bibliography “I Am Malala” by Malala Yousafzai, the author mentions “Then, when she said I would have to leave my school books behind, I nearly cried, too. I loved school, and all I cared about were my books”.
The exploration of gender roles and the plight of women in Hurston’s novel continues to be relevant in today’s world, despite the fact that Their Eyes Were Watching God is now 79 years old.

Although the novel was published in a different time, the central message to pursue the destiny that one truly desires still reaches women and girls all around the world
In The Bell Jar social conventions like women settling down and giving birth to children are what really shows where a woman 's place is within the community. The fact that if a woman focuses more on her academics than family life is frowned upon and not something to brag over shows how very little freedom there was for women to explore themselves beyond sprouting the life of new generations. The vast majority of the story itself deals with the expectations held towards the protagonist, her future, and her behaviour by the community she is surrounded with as well as herself. The fig tree, recognised as a prominent symbol within the novel, is introduced to the reader through a tale about a Catholic nun and a Jewish man. In the story, the two meet whilst picking figs until one day they eventually touch hands, which results in the nun not returning.
Michelle Rhee explains the rough life of Maria in El Salvador with the MS-13 gangs, the loss of her aunt, and the struggle of entering school only knowing one language. This heartbreaking and emotional story line gives the audience a story with which to nekite, stronger than giving the logical appeal of parents not wanting their kids to stress out in school, in Rhee’s article. Kristina Rizga was well aware of her audience in her article helping get a grasp of the readers to join her argumentative side rather than Michelle
The stories Susan B Anthony Dares to Vote and Don’t Give Up The Fight share a common theme of courage. In both stories, the main characters show perseverance. Susan B Anthony challenges equal rights, and Ava sticks up against her track teacher and others. Ava has to work up the guts to tell someone about track and Susan tries to fight for women's rights. Even though both show the same theme, they handle their problems differently.
Stanton began the fight for women’s rights, and we have come such a long way since then. Even though there are problems that continue to arise for women, there has been significant improvement in all areas, and women continue to keep fighting for equality. Women went from having no rights, to being able to vote, go to school, get a job, own a house, support herself, and so much more that not long ago, women were unable to do. Although issues still need to continue being addressed, Stanton would be surprised at how far women have come since she first addressed the issue. She would want them to continue fighting for equality and would be proud that what she did had an impact, and changed the lives of women forever.
She also new that if she fought for the rights she knew were right then she could change the world. For this reason, when one another believe in each other is what they have to drive them to make a difference. Additionally, Bella Abzug has outstanding traits of a hero, like how she helped women by giving the rights we have today, she has overcome many obstacles in her life and career, and she has made a difference in the world. For people who feel like they can go out and change the world but they are to scared to, it’s important to have these role models to show them it is possible. If you want to make a difference, what are you waiting
Even though she didn't express her feelings about not getting any benefits from her mother's death, I can tell that she was upset and shocked that the government overlooked the work, her mother did daily. Smith-Yackel uses the telephone conversation as a frame for the essay, which is very interesting. It makes the story a little more realistic and it ends the essay well. Being a mom is one of the hardest jobs in the world, this paper helped my belief of this
Gender provided a useful category for the League’s member activism in the mid-twentieth century. League members were motivated by their experiences as mothers, those experiences embolden them to claim a voice (Shulte 4). Women were not only doing the things they did for themselves but also for their children and to better their future. The League of Women Voters fought for women’s new found right and tried to get more
Throughout the poem, Kay also uses connotation(implied meaning) to remind women they are worth more than they are perceived to be. Thus, they need to define themselves based on their own terms.

n the Julia Alvarez novel, How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents, the struggles the sisters experience due to moving from the Dominican Republic to America are the most influential factors in their internal conflicts in their lives. The mixture of the two opposing cultures creates numerous obstacles that are pivotal in the development of the Garcia family. If the Garcia family did not move, the sisters would never experience situations that lead to intimacy problems, cultural conflicts, or identity crises. Yolanda’s intimacy issues largely stems from the encounters she had with Rudy in “The Rudy Elmenhurst Story”. Yolanda falls for Rudy’s casual and easygoing demeanor, which coincidentally also happens to be the thing that keeps Yolanda from
The book, Bad Feminist, written by Roxane Gay, is a collection of essays that argues about many topics of feminism and typical problems in today’s society. “What We Hunger For," is one of her personal essays. Gay reveals to her reader the difficult journey she had to endure as a teen, while also taking her reader through the cultural experiences that many girls endure but never talk about. She later explores The Hunger Games trilogy and its heroine Katniss Everdeen to emphasize the cathartic and sobering stories in young adult literature. Gay claims that through the use of young adult literature and movies that speak of true experiences and accomplishments, the dark past young adult endure can be unlock and resolved.
There’s only life.” This quote perfectly sums up this article in saying that balancing work, and family can be one of the biggest deterrents for women to go into executive roles, and that since this is known large companies should be helping their mothers, not abandoning them. The article also sheds light on the fact that mothers, and most women do not have the choice to work; although they are becoming more educated women are not being rewarded in the same way. Because working is necessary for most women, if society was organized to be equal in the workforce people would realize that mothers just want the best for their children,

She explains how the women aren’t willing to waste their time finding someone to care for their child and animals while they are being taught how to read.
