The repetition of the statement “It is a violation of human rights when” makes the speech all the more memorable for the audience. The persuasion transitions to encouragement. Through this statement “We share a common future, and we are here to find common ground so that we may help bring new dignity and respect to women and girls all over the world, and in so doing bring new strength and stability to families as well”, the women feels empowered and hopeful for what is yet to come. Hillary Clinton uses the pronoun “we” throughout the entire speech, which indicates that she is speaking on behalf of an institution or as a representative. In this case, Hillary Clinton is representing women and aiming to bring dignity and respect to
Are you someone with rights; then let’s see where women’s right movement began. I feel Woman's right to suffrage by Susan B. Anthony was most compelling. It was to persuade the united states that women are people who should have rights. The main ideas are women are people, to make a law it would go against the constitution, and what it means to be a citizen. The emphasis on what the preamble says is the most important main idea.
She starts to create power by bringing in historical events that were very powerful themselves. She does this by addressing MLK’s speech and how the “dreams of a personal nature as well as dreams of a better world” (Finch) are powerful and worth fighting for. She is comparing the dreams of women being able to participate in the Olympics and the dreams of a better world. As in, women having the right to participate in the Olympics by vetoing for softball would be creating a better world for women. She is effective here because she is using power and history in her writing to persuade her audience.
The 19th amendment guaranteed voting rights to all American citizens. This amendment prohibits any American citizen from being denied the right to vote on the basis of gender. It is one of the biggest accomplishments from the women’s rights movement in the United States. The women’s rights movement had been a long and difficult road to gain equality.
In his exclusive essay for Glamour, titled “President Obama Says, “This Is What a Feminist Looks Like”, former president Barack Obama shares his views as a feminist, as well as how it has impacted his life as a son, husband, father, and president. He states how growing up with a single mother, supporting his wife, and raising two daughters has inspired and formed his views as a feminist. Throughout his life, he has seen the progress of women’s role in society enhance over time and he claims that right now is an “extraordinary time to be a woman”. Though there is still room for improvement on women 's rights, our country has made great progress in the act of women’s rights, according to Obama. During his presidency, he admits that he was working on creating policies to further the equality of women and their rights.
My other opinion is that maybe she should think about running for president because I think she would be very effective and make an even bigger impact on other African American girls to fight for more equality. In conclusion, Ruby Bridges was a very powerful women and hopefully she will continue to change lives of others. Thanks for reading this
League members were motivated by their experiences as mothers, those experiences embolden them to claim a voice (Shulte 4). Women were not only doing the things they did for themselves but also for their children and to better their future. The League of Women Voters fought for women’s new found right and tried to get more
This Amendment’s goal was to make sure that every person would have rights and equal opportunities. Alice Paul’s She dedicated her time to think of others and their rights. Paul’s actions had a long lasting effect on history, and because of her, all American women now have a voice in politics. Without Alice Paul’s advocation towards the nineteenth amendment, the United States would not allow women to vote, and the nation would not have a woman candidate running for president.
The American Civil Rights movement was started to give all Americans, regardless of their race or gender, a chance to vote and live equally.

Bella Abzug loved helping women and fighting for what was right. “At a young age she was offended that women were not treated the same as men” (“Abzug”). Bella knew she had to become a lawyer to help women get the rights women deserve. So that they could vote and own land like a man could. Not to mention, at a young age she knew that
Through years of gender inequality throughout the nation, one of the most important causes for women was when they received the right to vote, as it allowed them to have a voice within the country. While looking throughout the fight for Women’s Suffrage, many would say that it ultimately ended on August 26, 1920- when the 19th Amendment was officially ratified. Although this seems accurate, many others would say that the fight ended when the Supreme Court 's ruling ultimately established the Nineteenth Amendment. This is best shown by the ratification of the 19th amendment, Leser v. Garnett, and the overall process to reach the final ruling during the case.
Minnie had finally achieved what she had spent so much time fighting for but this accomplishment was great and it was a milestone for women in the state of teas but it wasn’t enough for Minnie she set her sights out for something bigger and better which was an amendment that would grant women throughout America the right to vote. In order to achieve this Minnie made arrangements with United States Senator from Texas Morris Sheppard in 1917 for a conference in his Washington, D.C. office for women to state their perspectives on the proposed suffrage amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Minnie and NAWSA lobbyist Maud Wood Park, who would become the first president of the League of Women Voters, initiated a campaign for constituents to flood the offices of their representatives with telegrams in favor of passage. The United States House of Representatives passed the first version of the Nineteenth Amendment on January 10, 1918, but it failed in the United States Senate.
Based on the selections by Epstein and O 'Beirne, for the next elected president to be a woman, what would you recommend for a feminist platform that would have the greatest chance of success with American voters? Barbara Epstein’s viewpoint is that the feminist movement has been successful and has benefited society by the advances in opportunities compared to 30 years ago because of the women’s movements. In addition, “issues such as childcare, violence against women, and reproductive rights have been placed on the public agenda as legitimate issues compared to the political agenda of the 1950s through the 1960s” (Finsterbusch, 2013, p.144).
An issue I am passionate about is… …feminism. I believe that there is a common misconception, particularly by men, that once voting rights for women were established, feminism was no longer necessary. Unfortunately though, that is definitely not the case. Women still make less money than men for the same jobs, sexual assault cases are way too frequent, and women are underrepresented in almost every professional field.
