Her background living in poverty in Antigua and “In New York in the seventies, with the women’s movement and sexual revolutions in full swing, Kincaid perceives a freedom around her and in other people that encourages her to create a new identity for herself as a writer.” (Hirsch and Schweitzer 476) She changed her name and her lifestyle so she could write with that passion she uses. Her background enables her to write about deep, emotional, and, interesting topics. It’s important to understand Kincaid’s beliefs on people and individual freedom because she was upset on how things played out in Antigua, and very liberally, she wants change. In A Small Place, she says, “Isn’t it odd that the only language I have in which to speak is the language of the criminal who committed the crime?” (Kincaid, 31) Here, it is clear that she thinks deeper than the surface.

A woman’s work is never done: many American women grow up with this saying and feel it to be true. One such woman, author Jessica Grose, wrote “Cleaning: The Final Feminist Frontier,” published in 2013 in the New Republic, and she argues that while the men in our lives recently started taking on more of the childcare and cooking, cleaning still falls unfairly on women. Grose begins building her credibility with personal facts and reputable sources, citing convincing facts and statistics, and successfully employing emotional appeals; however, toward the end of the article, her attempts to appeal to readers’ emotions weaken her credibility and ultimately, her argument. In her article, Grose first sets the stage by describing a specific scenario of housecleaning with her husband after being shut in during Hurricane Sandy, and then she outlines the uneven distribution of cleaning work in her marriage and draws a comparison to the larger feminist issue of who does the cleaning in a relationship. Grose continues by discussing some of the reasons that men do not contribute to cleaning: the praise for a clean house goes to the woman; advertising and media praise men’s cooking and childcare, but not cleaning; and lastly, it is just not fun.
