This book also had positive and negative points. For example, a positive point is how women were trying to become independent, as well as gain their individual rights. “In a lengthy series of resolutions, Cady Stanton and the others called for an end to all discrimination based on sex. Cady Stanton’s appropriation of the Declaration of Independence was a brilliant propagandistic stroke.” (Banner 40-41) In the attempt of gaining their rights, Cady Stanton and other women gathered the strength to speak demand their suffrage. “She proposed that the Declaration of Sentiments demand suffrage for women.

In conclusion, Oprah Winfrey’s speech does an amazing job of using the Rhetorical Appeals to be effective to her audience. Her Ethos is established before she even takes the stage to make her speech. Her Pathos is woven in and out by using, stories and vivid imagery as well as the overall tone of the topic of sexual harassment. Although her logos are not relied on as heavily as the other two, it leaves room for the audience to bring their own thought, feelings, and experiences to the table to develop a logical underpinning for themselves. A lot of her rhetoric is layered to include a mixture of multiple appeals at the same time.
The author of the short story “A Quilt of a Country,” Anna Quindlen, used many effective tactics and arguments to demonstrate her opinion that “America is united, despite all of the diversities and tragedies that she has faced and had to overcome.” Anna Quindlen demonstrated in examples and analogies her argument and used them to her advantage in her persuasion and and effective points. Anna Quindlen also proves in the point that America is different from any other country. In contrast, Anna Quindlen does use the counter strategy not to defame her original arguments, but instead to help to better her ideals and points. For example, the first main example and point used to explain her argument that America is diverse, is the quote by the historian Daniel Boorstin, which reads “[O]f all the nations in the world, the United States was built in nobody’s image.” According to Anna Quindlen, the United States is similar to a quilt, which is interwoven with the ideas that come from many different people from many different countries. Although this country seems discordant in times of distress, she is still able to have her people come together and work together to get the jobs done and help each other.
“The Case of Susan B. Anthony” by L.D. Blake is a document detailing a person fighting for women’s right to vote. It’s evident that she feels empowered by what Susan has accomplished. The author states in Par. 10 “Such courage and energy as hers deserve admiration, and what is more support” ,moreover, in the third paragraph, the sentence “The United States Authorities have, however, pursued these women with may almost be styled virulence.”.
The author, a 19th century women’ rights leader, intends to justify her voting act was not a crime but rather an act based on her constitutional rights and further claims that since all women are also people, all women should not be discriminated because of their gender: just like how negroes should not be segregated because of their skin color. In order to effectively and strongly build her argument, the writer, Susan Anthony uses various writing techniques: use of emotional and deep-seated terminologies to describe the unfair intolerance; analogies with the ‘negroes’ engage the readers; repetition of phrases to emphasize her statement. First of all, the use of the narrator’s sentimental words and phrases enhances her argument’s verity and
The appeals she used really connected to the audience in one or many ways. Coming into a conclusion, Sojourner Truth used logical appeals to persuade us, ethical appeals to make the audience believe she can be trusted, and emotional appeals to make the audience feel or believe something. In her speech she talked about woman's rights and negro's right and how that needed to change because you are judging somebody based on their skin tone, gender, etc. And in a way she connected with everyone somehow. This speech was very important because Sojourner Truth was one of many who brought this issue to the public's eye and really tried to make a change for the
Increasingly, women recognised that campaigning was limited whilst women could not make their voices heard directly. As one entity fighting for their rights, women would eventually earn the right to vote. To finish off the poem, “...Makes a fountain of touches/Truly divine” is the perfect summation of the feminist movement, and can be applied to the fight against racism, homosexims, violence, and more. It is incredible to think that a simple touch, physically or emotionally, has the power to shape the world. The poem tells me that with my hope, your hope, and the hope of all women put together, anything is possible.
Cooney elaborates on the nonviolent nature of the movement, saying that women involved “didn’t take a single life,” despite facing “dead ends, discouragements, and immobility.” (Cooney) Cooney attributes much of this nonviolent success to the brilliant minds behind the movement, who were unsurprisingly all women. (Cooney) Names like Susan B. Anthony, Frances Willard, Jane Addams, Lucy stone, and Alice Paul stand the test of time as some of the brightest political leaders—and they did it as women in a time when women weren’t even allowed to cast a ballot. Eventually, several forms of protest worked in unison to guarantee the protesters
Sarah believed that all women should have an opportunity to pursue their own careers and dreams. According to Carol Berkin, “the Grimke sisters were among the first abolitionists to recognize the importance of woman's rights and to speak and write about the cause of female equality.” Sarah fought against gender inequalities by making speeches in front of audiences. She encouraged women to speak their minds. Sarah said, “we began using proportions of our lectures to defend our right to speak. ‘What we claim for ourselves we claim for every woman!’” (Kidd 331).
Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a very confident, determined, and fearless woman. While many people opposed equal rights for women and abolishing slavery, she supported these things. (11) Her being a woman who was also an abolitionist and women’s rights activist in the 19th century was a dangerous and frustrating task. However, she continued to try and make a difference in society by fighting for these changes. Clearly, Elizabeth Stanton had to be confident to speak to crowds and to publish books with very bold ideas that supported women.
It told realistic tales of the female’s role in the war, as important supporters. This book is “new” because Berkin wanted to gather the perspectives of women from all the different classes and race into a single collection. Other sources have had these stories separately, but by putting them all together, the reader can contrast the differences and similarities within one read. Berkin also goes in-depth about the events each women had to go through from different regions of the colonies and from different backgrounds. The author doesn’t hesitate to introduce ladies of different ideas and personalities.
She questions the gender inequality due to her belief that women are qualified and deserve more. This work is intended to influence the women in society and inspire them to expand themselves as she did, and the men who hold traditionalist views that depict women at a lower standard (POV). In document 11, Chatelet demonstrates the effort that women are capable of devoting in the name of reason, she states “ Do not reproach me for my work on translating Newton’s Principia. Never have I made a greater sacrifice to Reason.”(Doc 11). She shows that if the time and devotion is placed into to doing something, then outstanding work can be
