Sanger experienced multiple roadblocks on her journey to fight for the invention, as well as women’s rights to accessing oral contraceptives. In the year of 1914, Sanger was arrested for distribution of her magazine, The Woman Rebel which included progressive ideas about birth control use (41).

It was not until 1923 that Sanger achieved her goals of bringing America the first legal birth control clinic, which coined the name Planned Parenthood two years
Childhood is an age of bliss where innocence holds oneself tightly. Tragically, American history disagrees. As industrialization started to become one of the biggest leading powers in the American economy and society during the early 20th century, businesses began to hire whomever they could, including children. In July 22, 1905 in Philadelphia, Florence Kelley took an appalled, but determined tone when she spoke out against child labor in an effort to give women voting rights to right this wrong. By using sound rhetorical language, diction, and rhetorical appeals such as pathos and logos, Kelley was able to create a vivid speech that reflects on the inhumane ways child labor inflicts harm on the innocence that describes childhood, as well as convince the audience that women’s suffrage is the solution to this immoral problem.

The tragedy served as an incentive; determined to save women in her mother’s position, Sanger enrolled in a medical program at Claverack College. She graduated in 1900 and began work as a nurse at White Plains Hospital. (Sanger 20). Here, she saw hordes of impoverished girls in desperate need of birth control and abortions, both illegal at the time. Sanger set out to change this, and at the end of her career, she would become the face of the Women’s Reproductive Rights movement.
Children from as young as the age of 6 began working in factories, the beginning of their exploitation, to meet demands of items and financial need for families. In Florence Kelley’s speech before the National American Woman Suffrage Association in Philadelphia 1905, Kelley addresses the overwhelming problem of child labor in the United States. The imagery, appeal to logic, and the diction Kelley uses in her speech emphasizes the exploitation of children in the child labor crisis in twentieth century America. Kelley’s use of imagery assists her audience in visualizing the inhumanity of the practice. She begins by talking about the amount of children and the drastic rate of increase of the wage class.

For instance, in lines 46-48, Kelley explains, “In Pennsylvania, until last May it was lawful for children, 13 years of age, to work twelve hours at night.” By talking about the children “13 years of age to work twelve hours at night”, it allows the members of the National American Woman Suffrage Association to examine the cause of the mental and physical harm done to children. By grabbing the audience’s attention, she reveals her audacity. In addition, Kelley productively integrates pathos into the logos. For example, in lines 18-22, Kelley quotes, “Tonight while we sleep, several thousand little girls… silks and ribbons for us to buy.” By comparing the scenes of “other” people to young girls in the night, she compels the audience to feel sympathy. Illustrating two contrasting situations, she effectively develops from the evidence to her main purpose to properly change the working conditions of children.

Cinderella Ate My Daughter follows the life of Peggy Orenstein, a journalist as she takes on the impossible task of raising a child. As one source puts it, “Orenstein spends the 256 pages of Cinderella Ate My Daughter asking paradoxical questions and playing devil’s advocate. Despite the many questions and few answers, one thing remains clear: consumer culture has infiltrated every aspect of our lives, beginning at birth. Nearly every stage of life has been externally defined, marketed, and consequently, commoditized” (ACSD). After Orenstein explains how through marketing and media, girlhood is conceptualized, she describes the internal implications that defining girlhood can have on girls.
