Carrie was going to have to earn the support of Congress to get the amendment proposed. At this time there were only two states that allowed women to vote. Wyoming started to allow women to vote in 1890 and Colorado also allowed women to start voting in 1893. Besides those two states women had no rights towards voting until Carrie came around. It was known that most women activists followed the pacifist movement and disagreed on the United States entering WWI.
Florence Kelley delivered a speech to the National American Woman Suffrage Association regarding the argument that child labor should be stopped. She presented very good arguments and persuaded many people to follow what she was arguing about. She used many different rhetorical strategies and she organized and analyzed her speech to perfect what she was going to say. The purpose of this argument was to convince the government to enforce laws that restrict child labor and benefit woman in an increase to improve working conditions.
Jane Addams earns the title of the most important female reformer during the Progressive Era due to her many contributions to female activism. Addams created the Hull House directly in Chicago to improve the lives of poor immigrants and women. This was important because other reformers simply provided aid from afar, while workers in the Hull House and other settlement houses relocated in the areas with those in need. She realized that, although her social work was successful, government action was necessary to solve the problems related to health, housing, and income (Foner, 720). To solve these problems, the Hull House set in motion many different reforms in Chicago that eventually spread to places elsewhere (Foner, 720).
As I said earlier, signing the petition might get you fired so if Lyddie signs the petition, she’ll get fired so she wouldn’t be able to get money for her family. When Lyddie receives a letter from her mother, she gets or determined than ever to get money to support her family. “She must earn all the money she could to pay what they owed, so she could gather her family together…” (88) This shows that Lyddie is determined to raise money to support her family. But if she signs the petition, she could get fired. Then, she wouldn’t be able to support her family.
250 million girls live in poverty today. The girl 's family will have to use their money to send the sons to school before sending the daughters because women lack the same power as men in these societies. Girls will have to resort to selling herself in order to support their family. Anyone can help by donating to these girls and their families. This will help them reach their full potential and shape the future, support global economies, and break the cycle of global poverty.

This is why I think that replacing Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the $20 is a fantastic idea. Andrew Jackson does not belong on the bill any longer because of his history that involved thousands of deaths caused by his own hands. I believe that Harriet Tubman
She took charge and made everyone work in the fields, something only slaves did before the war. She, herself, bought a lumber mill and became a shrewd business woman who would sell bad lumber at a good price to unsuspecting customers if she thought she could get away it it. She learned how to budget and cook and take care of the house to ensure their survival. Without the Civil War destroying her old way of life, it would not have been necessary for Scarlett to become a leader. The hardships she faced during and after the war forced her to take a position as the head of the family in order to endure.
Mama is an authentic feminist. She tells Beneatha that she have to conform to certain rules in the family “not long as [she is] the head of this family”. (Page 34). She wants to save her family from economic pressures which compels her children to cause resentments towards each other. Thus, she had “got to do something different… and do something bigger” (Page 71).
UNICEF (United Nations International Children 's Emergency Fund) UNICEF deals with child marriage as part of its broader approach to gender discrimination that undermines the rights of children and women. In order to ensure that girls have an equal opportunity at education, which is imperative in preventing child marriages and the overall development of girls, UNICEF 's Global Girls ' Education Program operates in more than 60 countries. In addition to supporting campaigns and creating education systems, UNICEF also has helped develop two successful initiatives in South Asia and sub-Saharan African, the regions with highest rate of child marriage. The Meena initiative and the Sara Adolescent Girl Communication Initiative served as
The candidate I think should be president is Bernie Sanders. There are many things he wants to contribute to that I agree with, such as affordable housing, the lowering of prescription drug prices, a creating what he calls a “living wage.” There are some things that I disagree with him, but the candidate you choose is most likely not going to fit all of your requirements. Bernie Sander’s “Living Wage” is his plan to increase minimum wage for all workers. He believes that the minimum wage amount should be $15 dollars an hour.
Brooks utilizes personal emotional appeal to his audience that creates relatability to Kathy Fletcher and David Simpsons. The couple lives in a house consisting of “small bedrooms” yet they still manage to accommodate everybody that is welcomed to their home. Brooks give the idea that the couple are average, yet managed to do a tremendous task. These children refer to Kathy and David as “Momma and Dad,” showing that they represent what they didn’t have and it creates a relationship between the children and Kathy and David. The children are also “unfailingly polite” and “turn toward one another’s loves” proving that they are now part of a family and they began to rely on each other like a family does.
The United States is made up of some of the most diverse and interesting cultures in the world. Jamila Lyiscott proves this by showing her different dialects and how they are all equally important. Lyiscott believes that the way she speaks towards her parents, towards her friends, and towards her colleagues are all one in the same. Throughout the entirety of her speech, Lyiscott changes up her vocal patterns and dialects so that the audience can understand first hand what each of these dialects are. When she talks about her father, Lyiscott uses her native tongue, when she talks to her fellow neighbors and close friends she switches it up to a more urbanized dialect, and when she is in school she masks the other two dialects with a professional sounding language.
America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. This phrase is sung with pride and passion by American citizens. However, some of America’s hardest working citizens are shackled down by a factor that they have no control over. Poverty, is what’s keeping citizens imprisoned while they should be living free. An appalling 44 percent of homeless Americans are employed (http://nationalhomeless.org/).
Though O'Brien's use of juxtaposition and shifts in point of view, he is able to not only show the “crazy powers of war”, but also conveys how war stories aren't true unless they are unbelievable. O’Brien talks about how believable war stories are made up as well as how “a true war story is never moral [and]... if [it]... seems moral, do not believe it” (O’Brien 65). The Vietnam war was a dark and horrific place for a lot of people, and O’Brien helps share those emotions through his “non-moral stories”. In one of the stories O’Brien describes a story where they are in middle of the jungle they heard “chamber music “ and “all these different voices…[then a] cocktail party” (O’Brien 71).
