Cady Stanton uses an interesting and unique technique to support her points. She begins by building a comparison of women and slaves. She successfully allows the audience to see how women and slaves have been denied the same rights, with this rapport she then turns the conversation around and says that “the prejudice towards women is more deeply rooted and more unreasonable maintained than that against color”. She goes on to explain how women have been forgotten and ignored while slaves started gaining civil rights. Another technique that Cady Stanton uses is referring to the Bible and other important writing to support her points.
"Yellow Woman and a Beauty of a Spirit" by Leslie Marmon Silko addressed multiple societal views, individuality, and sexuality in a powerful and persuasive manner. Silko effectively structures her narrative by using a plethora of techniques such as reflection, comparison, and narration. In her exposition, Silko sets up multiple points and ideas while conveniently clarifying the ways of life of the Laguna Pueblo people through reflections and flashbacks. Silko begins the opening paragraphs with the main issue, which regards her physical appearance and her differences. Her grandmother A'mooh is introduced through flashbacks, and Silko's experiences with her develop several central ideas that later become the resolution for Silko's problems.
She ends the first paragraph with “Is not that plain?” after she explains that the community of fugitive slaves who don’t have a voice needs her newspaper to express themselves. Shadd Cary also ends her last paragraph “Do you agree with us?” The simple and yet straightforward rhetorical questions establish a tone of authority. Shadd Cary’s audience is the community of fugitive slaves most of whom are not educated, so her tone is somewhat forceful in order to convince them to agree with her, leaving them with no little option. Her use of rhetorical questions compels her audience to believe that the newspaper is indeed required for the
Pauline Johnson, is more about representing Native women and giving a realistic characterization to Native women in literature. A Red Girl’s Reasoning is a direct response and criticism of the “Winona” character that flooded literature in the nineteenth century. Christine is the complete opposite of a “Winona” character; she isn’t the mindless, over-emotional, dishonest, and deceitful woman that other portrayals of Native women were. She stayed true to her cultural beliefs while still compromising with Charlie to make their marriage work. When Charlie questions the legitimacy of her parent’s marriage and implies that Christie was born outside of marriage even though her parents were married by Indian rites.
She shows how strength comes in in all different manners. Power can come from a person 's physical features, through good deeds, or money. Janie 's hair is an example of a woman 's power, and Hurston uses Janie 's hair as a way to introduce the idea that strength causes conflict in the world. Hurston used this conflict throughout the book warn society about how it could be running itself off the rails, and by giving an early warning Hurston shows that she believes that society will be able to correct its own course by becoming more accepting. Zora Neale Hurston uses a woman 's suffering as well as black inequality to warn the world about their inherent fate.
The moving story of Recy Taylor, a woman raped and beaten, through the retelling of Oprah, only further hooks the audience, creates a sense of sincerity and intimacy, and ultimately strengthens Oprah’s persuasion of the audience. Oprah’s display as an orator should not go unnoticed. Throughout the entirety of her delivery, Oprah projects herself with a clear, calm, and strong yet soft emphasis. Oprah maintains stern eye-contact with the audience, and presents herself in a strong, iron-body demeaner. These oratorical techniques coincide to further captivate the audience and continue to ease the audience into the persuasion of the viewpoint presented in her speech.
