Women has greatly suffered in society from the beginning until now and no one seems to notice this prolonged issue that women have to endure in their daily lives. The media played a major role to how women are perceived in todays society. Nevertheless, in todays world more and more individuals are attempting to address the problem to solve this issue once and for all. Jennifer Newsom effectively convince her audience in an American documentary film: “Miss representation” to embellish the denigration of women in society and persuade the audience through the use of logos, pathos, and explicit visual images. Throughout the documentary, Newsom utilizes numerous sources such as different facts and statistics that strengthen her claim and appeal to logos for the under-representation of woman in todays society.
“...I see women contending’ for their rights…” (Truth 254). She noticed women trying incredibly hard to gain their rights. Women wanted to be viewed as equals and felt they were no different than men. Truth was successful in her speeches because it gave women to power to speak up and push for their right to vote. If she never advocated for these women, society today may be very different.
Anthony, who fights for the women’s rights and suffrage, successfully convinces her audience by using effective strategies of argument. Throughout the speech, she makes stylistic choices within the diction cited from an authority with strength. She also never misses to appeal emotionally to the listeners. At last, she uses a rhetorical question by affirming the pain of women, who suffers from the deprivation of their rights that should have been secured. Anthony justifies her decision of action by articulating with fair
She fought for her own rights along with other women’s rights. That shows courage because she stands up for what she believes in, not caring what the end result might be. In the article it said, “But After the famous trials in 1872, she won and more support. Younger women rallied around her. They too went out and made speeches and handed out positions.” This also shows courage because she shows women it's ok to fight for rights that more people should do it, even though she could be arrested or be in serious trouble.
The progressive era was a historical movement in time where extensive social activism and political reform were taking place all across America. If would be inadequate to say that one class of women, either the working class or the middle class, were affected more or less than the other by this era. They were both handing different forms of change and reform, but all of equal value. The working class women were piloting research, implementing reformation programs, attempting to increase wages, improve working conditions, and lobbying legislation to make positive changes. Amongst the working class women were many notable women that changed history.
By signing agreements, boycotting goods, and helping out a good cause women proved that they could take charge and do anything they put their minds to. One might think that men had the greatest role in the Revolution, but women had an equal role in making the Revolution
This play is a perfect example of a woman, following what she believes in and accomplishing her goal. In society, women are faced with many challenges that men just don't have to deal with. To this day, women are treated as inferior to men in every setting; work, school, public and even in households. Although I do think that Sophocles did separate Antigone's character, making her more independent and unconventional than the “traditional woman,” I think that there is more to the story. Sophocles still included Haiman, making him seem more heroic due to the fact that he defends her and kills himself over her body.
Through the tremendous struggle men of color were able to legalize their human rights. On the other hand, women still faced inequalities, stereotypes, discrimination and segregation in society. Many women played important roles in the civil movement, but were often overshadowed by men, who still get more attention and credit for this success. Many women experienced gender discrimination after the civil rights movement which, lead to the pursue of women’s rights, the fight for the idea that women should have equal rights as men. Over time, this has taken the form of gaining property rights, the right for women to vote, reproductive rights, and the right to work for equal pay.
During the video I found myself amazed on how she pointed out not only the feminist point of view, but covered that there are problems on both sides of the argument. Emma watson spoke at the United Nations about feminism and gender equality. During her speach he covered a varity of topics and shared her own experiances. The main point that caught my eye is how she stated that women arent the only ones affected by gender steryotypes. Men are also targeted when it comes to gender equality as men are subject to higher rates of suicide for struggling with the image that society wants them to portray.
The women of the civil right movement were key to achieving every victory, and they faced twice the adversity. Not only did they fear for their life, they feared for the potential sexual abuse and rape that could happen to them. The women of the civil rights movement are the strongest individuals who helped fight back against
