This paper is a rhetorical analysis for the political memoir Unbought & Unbossed by Shirley Chisholm. This memoir is about the Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm and her difficult, powerful, and motivational path of becoming the first black female to be elected into congress. This memoir breaks her life down and shows all of the struggles of her race, gender, and ethnicity and how she overcame them all to make her way to the top. The memoir is from Shirley Chisholm’s perspective as she tells her story. Chisholm is a female playing in a “man’s world” when it comes to role in politics, she is forced to struggle with competing against the gender stereotypes seen in male and female politicians.
The poem The Female Patriots, Address'd to the Daughters of Liberty in America by Hannah Griffitts interprets the colonists' outrage against the new established British taxation.

The purpose of her poem is to have influence on these women.
But also to give them resources to benefit their future. The funding shouldn’t be just money going towards fixing the problems, but materials and resources to help fix the problem while getting the community back on their feet. Putting money towards the problem wouldn’t make a big difference within the communities because the people of Attawapiskat, particularly the Chiefs, lack the education to know how and where the money should be spent. Although, the money could help different materials could make a change. The government can give the community an opportunity to build the needed housing with the provided materials or even the access to better water. The government could also give the people of Attawapiskat an opportunity for a better education. Reflecting on what they could later attain. Lastly, awareness should be raised surrounding the condition of First Nations, and Attawapiskat. People should be better educated on how First Nations live and who they are. Breaking the notable barrier between the government, other Canadians and the First Nations people. Giving them hope and a sense of
On August 19, 1920 the 19th Amendment was ratified, finally giving women the right to vote. But what instances led up to this pivotal moment in history? Jane Addams does a great service in providing thorough information as to the reasons why women should be given this right in her document, Why Women Should Vote. She writes that this document is an attempt to show how women of that time were failing in their daily duties in the home due to a lack of conscience in the outside world around them. She believes that if women were given a say so, the streets would be cleaner, the food would be cleaner, and the rate of children dying from deadly diseases would drastically drop. In the next few paragraphs I will do my best to show you how Jane Addams was successful in persuading the American people that a change was necessary for the future of their children, for the future of America.
The Tulsa Race Riot occurred from May 31, 1921 to June 1, 1921. On May 31, an African American shoe shiner named Dick Rowland was boarding an elevator near where he worked. Upon entering the elevator, he stumbled and grabbed the arm of the elevator operator, a white woman named Sarah Page. When she screamed, Mr. Rowland was accused of rape and taken into police custody.
"We stand here today united in a belief in beauty, genius, and courage, and that these can transform the world" Jane Addams was an incredible woman who helped make the changes in child labor laws and the rights of workers that occurred during the Progressive Era. She took action to get corporations to raise wages and improve workplace quality for poor Americans, even though she herself was rich. She fought to make America go through an evolution both mentally and physically by making people aware of the struggles of working immigrants and making sure changes happened to keep workers safe as they provided for their families.
If Jane Addams were to do speed dating, she would most likely have chosen, Florence Kelley as a suitor for her work and involvement as a social activist. Florence Kelley was outspoken about racial equality and an activist for child's rights. She helped to create the NAACP, and was the vice president of NAWSA. Jane Addams supported and spoke out for equal treatment for all people, therefore her social and moral beliefs were compatible with Florence Kelley’s. While Kelley started the National Association for the Advancement of Colored people, Addams started the Hull House. Both women had a mission to help minority people in America. Due to their similar interests and beliefs these two influential women would have been a match made in heaven.
Housing discrimination and segregation have long been present in the American society (Lamb and Wilk). The ideals of public housing and home buying have always been intertwined with the social and political transformation of America, especially in terms of segregation and inequality of capital and race (Wyly, Ponder and Nettking). Nevertheless, the recent unrest in Ferguson, Missouri and in Baltimore due to alleged police misconduct resulting to deaths of black men brought light on the impoverished conditions in urban counties in America (Lemons). This brings questions to the effectiveness of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in devising more fair-housing facilities (Jost). Thus, we need a new housing policy that will address not only the discriminate housing problem, but also urban poverty in general.
Jane Evershed is one of those people that has the ability to speak through her artwork. This is a wonderful skill to have, as a picture is worth a thousand words. She speaks most openly to women, those who may or may not have endured the discrimination, oppression, sexual assault, and abuse from loved ones or society itself. Society makes it harder for women to accept themselves as they are. They come in all shapes and sizes, ethnicities and backgrounds, religions and sexualities. Evershed realizes this, and uses her personal struggles and the ongoing struggles of women everywhere to get a message across: women are beautiful, powerful, and strong. This is why there have been many women to join together and promote feminism; to stand proud
Jane was determined to get a good education which she ended up getting. She went to Rockford sanitary for women which is now called Rockford University and she also studied to be a doctor but had to quit because she was hospitalised too many times. Being sick affected her life very much so when she got older she remedied her spinal defect with surgery. When she wasn’t able to study anymore she traveled to Europe, Jane traveled to Europe twice and on the second trip she saw something that changed her future. She saw a little house in london made for the homeless, sick and the less fortunate to live in. When Jane got back from the trip she had been so inspired by the little

In producing this essay, I will explain to u the similarities and differences of each men, what each men hoped to achieve, their hard challenges, skills, & the effect of the 400 year difference between the two.
I do not believe that every woman during 1812 was a stay at home wife that answered every whim her husband laid out for her. Therefore, much as I said in my discussion post, "some women participated in the battles as soldiers while others spied on the enemies." Nevertheless, Mary Pickersgill is an excellent example of women who resided in 1812 era who created a variant of the American flag, which many sought as a symbol of freedom and motivation for the soldier. Additionally, after the death of Mary’s husband, she decided to leave her matrimonial home in Baltimore, and move to Philadelphia to fend for her daughter and elderly mother. However, nothing impressed me more than seeing her spearheading the movement in "housing, job placement assistance
To think back in the old days, when women were struggling get right to vote and when Susan B. Anthony was active giving speeches, she made a great speech to hear us all. At that time, men were controlled. Startlingly, she says “Friends and fellow-citizens.” This is because she was trying to introduce an important topic of her main argument. Then she says, “I stand before you tonight under indictment for the alleged crime of having voted at the last Presidential election, without having lawful right to vote.” This defines to me that she has voted in last Presidential election. After this she explains, “I not only committed no crime, but instead, simply exercised my citizen’s rights.” She is saying that she have not done a crime but suffered and worked hard to make different rules. Basically, in this paragraph, Anthony thinks that her action of voting was illegal, but morally justified meaning it is not legal to vote; however, she believes she have done a right thing. In the second paragraph Anthony explains furthermore to strengthen her thesis. She says, “it was we, the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we, the male citizens; but we, the whole people, who formed the Union.” a way to describe this into easier words is that she supposes that female are also the people but not male and white male citizens who formed the large Union. In this excerpt, It has clearly shown that at that time there are still racism happen between the blacks and the whites. Anthony is saying two distinct skin color of people and also created this whole union. In the rest of this paragraph, she says
Contemplating ideas to make any changes to my community is a very difficult task. My community is one of the most supportive and considerate communities one could ever even dream being a part of. I am truly blessed to be living in such a noticeably beneficial environment. Moreover, attending Montour High School all throughout my life has shown me the great power of compassion and how rewarding kindness can really be. My presence in the community has shown me that the Montour community is special, and this has been proven time and time again. However, in spite of every great attribute regarding my area of residence, there is always room for improvement. My community is always giving back to those in need, from organizing various charity events,
