Her speech was effective considering it was said by Diana’s ex-mother-in-law so she is a credible source to listen to about because she personally knew her. The Queen’s interaction with the audience was to tell them to remember how she lived young and free, not how she died in pain and
Carrie Chapman Catt uses a lot of ideas about democracy in her speech that was logical. Catt uses logic to appeal to her audience from the first reason of women suffrage inevitability to the end of the speech. Catt uses the Declaration of independence, which turn out to be the basic rule of government (Catt, 1917). This is because it states that all men (women) are created equal and Catt used that along with the quote from Woodrow Wilson that states “we are fighting for the things which we have always carried nearest to our hearts: for democracy, for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government” (Catt, 1917). The logic in Wilson’s quote as it relates to women’s suffrage is if democracy is the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own government than why do women not allow to vote because they too submit to authority as men do.
She transitions by saying she will fight with them, justifying herself because she has “the heart and stomach of a king.” Here she explains their duty to her and that she is their “general, judge or reward” for what they do in battle. Now they must protect her not only because she trusts them but because they will be rewarded if they fight with her and judged if they fight against her. She loves them but she is also superior because, as she emphasized, she has “royal blood”. Therefore she deserves their honor and protection as any king
This is why they started a rebellion so that they could help people who were opposed to the Empire. They believed they could create a new order that would promote democracy and not tyranny. Leia’s first love Kier feels obligated to become a senator so that he can represent his home planet. All these characters in the book want to be part of something big for the benefit of others. One example that supports the theme is when Leia is on her Day of Demand and states that she’s going to her complete her training so that she can serve Alderaan(her home planet) as the princess.
In paragraph 11, the text states, “She appointed officials and advisors; dealt with the priests; appeared in public ceremonies first behind, then beside, and eventually in front of her nephew.” This quote explains she was a good leader because she took all the responsibilities a pharaoh would take. Also in paragraph 12, the text states, “Egypt required a strong pharaoh to ensure maat. Hatshepsut could be that pharaoh—even if she did happen to be a woman.” This quote explains that Hatshepsut was a strong pharaoh because she was willing to take the responsibility a leader or pharaoh would do. In conclusion, Hatshepsut was a strong leader because she took the responsibility that any pharaoh would
As part of the movement, in 1913, Pankhurst carried her appeal to the United States, where she delivered her famous speech Why Are We Militant. Therein, she expressed her ideas about women 's suffrage. She gave a talk to encourage American men and women to give political rights to women. In her speech, she states that both men and women are created equal and hence due to this equality women should have political rights too. Throughout her speech she emphasizes the discrimination against women, using the right to vote, the roles in marriage, and unequal wages as her evidence.
In a time of such desperation who do you look to? As a citizen it 's the person that has sealed their life for the insurance of your safety and protection. Queen Elizabeth I exemplified such raw and passionate traits for her people in an address to her troops during a time of war. The queen 's speech was delivered as a way to show her trustworthiness in the ability of her troops to protect the civilians in the batter against the Spaniards, all the while persuading her people that she were as fit a queen as any king could be during a time when such a dominant ruler was needed. This speech would be one that would not only move the civilians so much so that they 'd put their fate in the hands of the queen and her troops, but also force that would will these troops to be brave and fight with the strength reign through.
Professions for Women At the beginning of the 19th century, ideas of the roles of men and women has taken a turn as women take a stand to encourage other women to overcome obstacles that society’s perspectives of gender roles confine them in. Women’s conflict to find their voice during this time struggle has taken a turn in the evolving male-dominated society. An English writer, Virginia Woolf, delivered her speech “Professions for Women”, published in 1931 for the National Society for Women’s Service, and she argues that it is important for women stand up for themselves and allow their imagination to flow despite society’s oppression. Woolf begins with building her credibility with personal anecdotes, expresses the phantoms that limit women’s
Should women be allowed to fight in combat? Women should be allowed to fight in combat because statistics show that integrated military units perform better and have a higher group intelligence, women are willing to fight in combat knowing the dangers, responsibilities, and requirements needed and still show courage, and if someone is qualified for the job then gender should not matter. Protesters believe women cannot withstand the trauma of combat and cannot be aggressive enough, it is tradition for men to fight, not women, and women are susceptible to sexual harassment, but women still deserve the right to be equal amongst men in combat because women have proven themselves to be capable to do whatever they set their minds to. Recent studies at Harvard Business School show that group intelligence of the unit rises when women are on the team. Due to social sensitivity, the ability to read emotions, integrated units perform better when both sides are understood by each other.
Medea’s tone throughout her speech is proper, confident, and angry. It is as if she is a military leader, preparing her troops for battle. She uses “we” to show connection between herself and the chorus. She states her points of why she has been wronged and we see this applies to the other women because the chorus fully supports and sympathizes with her. The chorus says, “You are right Medea” (L 266).
Using the method of fear to get her followers to agree with her is not a good method, but it gets the job done. Queen Melissa would be the ideal leader, because she is strong, independent, and fearless. The kingdom will always be protected under her rule, and everyone will have
However, not all views were changed as some employers made agreements with unions promising to protect skilled men’s jobs after the war; portraying traditional views of women were still present - they were still expected of maintaining their ‘wife and mother’ role. Likewise, Bruley strengthens the argument that ‘One of the ironies of war is that women on whole emerged in 1918 healthier and enjoyed a higher standard of living than in 1914’. Bruley’s view has limited validity because women proved that being employed helped them mentally and physically as work occupied their mind and not their husbands. This helped them build communities of support for their love ones in war. Women were unifying as unmarried mothers, who were usually shunned away in society, were allowed to return to work, although at Woolwich children of these women were cared for in a separate nursery from children of married women.
For example, in Classics of Filial Piety for Women, Madam Cheng from Tang dynasty emphasizes female leadership role and argues that women could “govern the nine degrees of familial relations” with filial piety (826). Furthermore, Madam Cheng suggests that women also play an important role in supervising their husbands’ moral conducts. She reinforces women’s moral influence by comparing husband and wife to emperor and officials (827). Similarly, in Analects for Women, the female author Song Ruozhao also points out married woman’s responsibility of remonstrance, “If he [the husband] does something wrong, gently correct him (830).” Therefore, with an emphasis on women’s leadership role and moral influence on family members, these instructional texts elevate women’s social status in the domestic sphere to some degree. In summary, writing enables women to receive social recognition with their scholarship, participate in public affairs and increase their domestic status within
